It's a neighborhood gem! It is a wonderful experience to walk into the residence of an artist. Wharton Esherick was a prolific artist. According to our docent, Esherick designed a lot of pieces and sold them to support his daughter's education. The house/studio is an interesting structure. The furniture and sculptures were artistically done.
