The grounds and environment where Esherick lived and work was wonderful. I understand the limitation of space, meant limiting what was on exhibit to just leaving it as it was. My only disappointment was that the docents inside the building were not able to speak with any more information about his other artistic endeavors and were only moderately informed about what was obvious and well documented. They were not able to give more insight. Also, they let too many people in at once and it was quickly crowded. You need to control number of bodies at any one time.

The docents were amazing! We loved the casual atmosphere and easy access to the docents for questions and explanations. There were six of us, and each of us had a spectacular time and want to return to this jewel of a place.

My aesthetic sense is aligned with Esherick's: the pop of color to contrast the natural wood, the handleless doors, the curves and unsymmetrical placements. His creative use of space, organic designs and incredible craftsmanship is inspiring. Each docent was helpful, informative and enthusiastic. We were able to take our time and we actually went through the space twice, as we were misinformed that photographs were not allowed, when in fact they are now permitted. This actually added to our experience, as we were able to enjoy the studio and home without our iPhones in front of our faces during our first run-through. On the second time through, as we took photographs and spoke familiarly with the docents, we learned additional details. What a gem the Wharton Esherick museum is!

We very much enjoyed meeting and talking with the docents about the history of the Esherick studio. You're doing a great job and wish you the best in the future of the museum.
