Wharton Studio Museum hopes you are keeping well and staying safe in these challenging times of the pandemic. WSM continues to work -- remotely -- on programming and developing the historic Wharton Studio building in Stewart Park. We remain truly grateful for your support.

“Racism in America is like dust in the air. It seems invisible — even if you’re choking on it — until you let the sun in. Then you see it’s everywhere. As long as we keep shining that light, we have a chance of cleaning it wherever it lands. But we have to stay vigilant, because it’s always still in the air.”

—Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - June 3, 2020.

WSM film tour

WSM has created a Wharton Studio Silent Film Tour. This self-guided tour takes you to a number of Ithaca’s silent movie history locations, beginning with the historic Wharton Studio building in Stewart Park and on to Cornell University’s campus and then on to Upper Treman!
