Liollio's Liz Corr and husband, Brian Leounis, visited the Wharton Esherick Museum during a recent trip to visit family in Pennsylvania. The tour of his home included his early studio, loft living space and many pieces of furniture and art.
Wharton Esherick began his career as a painter but soon realized his talents as a wood worker. He created unique sculptures and furniture throughout his career. He worked primarily in wood, especially applying the principles of sculpture to common utilitarian objects. Consequently, he is best known for his sculptural furniture and furnishings. Esherick was recognized in his lifetime by his peers as the dean of American craftsmen for his leadership in developing non-traditional designs, and encouraging and inspiring artists/craftspeople by example. Esherick’s influence continues to be seen in the work of current artisans.
His home and studio, in Malvern PA, were his largest piece of art. Especially interesting are the curved stairs to his loft living space, which were once disassembled for display at the New York World’s Fair. The buildings evolved over forty years, as Esherick lived and worked there. He continued working on the studio until his death in 1970. In 1972 the studio was converted into the Wharton Esherick Museum. The property was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1993.

The 2017-2018 academic year marks the 175 Year Anniversary of The Citadel and, in a special partnership, The Post and Courier will commemorate this incredible milestone throughout the year with a series of events. You may have already noticed a key point of this partnership: the “Today in History” highlighting significant moments in Citadel history published daily on page 2 of The Post and Courier. The Post and Courier published a commemorative special publication on Sunday, March 25, 2018. The special publication included a historical overview of the past 175 years.
As part of this celebration, The Post and Courier also hosted the 175 Year Anniversary Luncheon on March 22 following the Greater Issues speech during Corps Day. Liollio Principals, Dinos Liollio, Cherie Liollio, Jay White, and Associate Principal, Andy Clark, joined in celebrating the military college of South Carolina and their extraordinary path to 175 years of excellence last Thursday at The Citadel’s Holliday Alumni Center.. The luncheon featured speakers including Lieutenant General John W. Rosa, USAF (Ret.), and Colonel Randy Bresnik, USMC (Ret,).
Principals Cherie & Dinos Liollio's son Zach wrote an interesting article on the history of shipbuilding in Charleston. It was published in the publication Roots and Recall. Read the full article here.
Our offices will be closed today (Monday) in observance of Memorial Day.
