Guest Newsletter for Wednesday, May 1

Here is the Hawthorne Guest Messenger for Wednesday, May 1, 2013.    

Hotel Notes:

Looking for a way to celebrate Father’s Day?  Come to the first annual “Daddy-Daughter” Dance at the Hawthorne Hotel!  Taking place on Saturday June 15, 2013 from 5:30 to 8:30pm, this event includes music, dancing hors d’oeuvres and beverages.  Everyone is welcome, and tickets are $35 per couple inclusive of tax and gratuities ($20 per additional person).  To make reservations call 978-825-4311. 

Stop by the Peabody Essex Museum and see the new exhibit by Toshio Shibata.  One of Japan's preeminent landscape photographers, Toshio Shibata is known for exploring the delicate balance between human made structures and nature. Photographing water catchments, roads, dams and bridges, he examines the unique appearance of such structures in his native land. Through his lens, river beds can look like origami, and waterfalls resemble kimonos. This exhibition of 28 large-format works will be the artist's first solo show in an American museum since 1995 and the first time his color images will be shown in America.  The Peabody Essex Museum is open Tuesday-Sunday from 10am to 5pm, and this exhibit is showing until December 31, 2013.

This Day in History
On May 1, 1941, Orson Welles’ masterpiece Citizen Kane was released in U.S. movie theaters. The movie, despite critical praise, was not initially well-received by audiences. It was only years later, when it was re-released, that Citizen Kane began to garner well-deserved accolades for its pioneering camera and sound work, as well as its deeply meaningful story. 

I hope to see you here!
