WSM receives Legacy Foundation grant for new project with Cherry Arts!

Wharton Studio Museum —  in partnership with the Cherry Arts —  is the thrilled recipient of a grant from Legacy Foundation to develop and produce a new audio walking play set during the heyday of the Wharton, Inc. movie studio and using scenic and historic Stewart Park as its backdrop. The “headphone play” is slated to debut summer 2018!
 
In 2016, The Cherry Arts audio walking play Storm Country, which interwove the geography and history of Ithaca’s West End with Ithaca writer Grace Miller White’s early 20th century pulp novel Tess of the Storm Country, was a well-received success and WSM is excited to be working with The Cherry’s creative team led by Artistic Director Sam Buggeln on this new venture.
 
Friends of Stewart Park is a collaborating partner in the project.
 
Stay tuned!
