Event Details

 

Penn Professor Peter Conn discusses the relationship between Wharton Esherick and Sherwood Anderson who met in 1919 in Fairhope, Alabama, a utopian community dedicated to progressive ideas in economics, politics, and education. The friendship they began would last for the next two decades, until Anderson's death in 1941. In quite different ways, both men made significant contributions to the creation of a distinctively American modern style. By looking closely at some of Esherick's sculpture and Anderson's fiction, the lecture will trace their respective achievements in this shared endeavor.
