A Sense of Place Resources...

Wharton Esherick Museum - Wharton Esherick, woodworker of furniture and sculptures

Philadelphia Magic Gardens - Isaiah Zagar, mosaic mural artist

Brandywine River Museum - Wyeth, painter

John James Audubon at Mill Grove - John James Audubon, artist

Bartran's Garden - John Bartran, early naturalist and plant preservationist
