Different. Unique. Unusual. PEM.

Sometimes it feels like I am living in a major metropolitan city.  Salem, Massachusetts, with a population of 42,200 people (and growing) is hardly anything in size when compared to say Boston, Massachusetts at well over 600,000 residents.

But having the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) in the heart of our little downtown makes all the difference in the feeling, the vibe of our great small town.  It truly is a cosmopolitan community with some of the best art and cultural exhibits anywhere.

Most recent among their special exhibits to open is From Here to Ear.  Here is an article that has an embedded sound track interview about this latest "Freeport" exhibit:  WBUR Interview

I was unable to attend the opening, so I asked Lindsay Otis of our team to tell me her thoughts about this new exhibit.  She told me that she had no idea what to expect, but that she really likes it.  She says it feels so ALIVE walking through this exhibit, like you are having so many of your senses touched, and you are involved in nature to a great degree.

To give you a small idea of what this exhibit is like, here is a video that was taken by one of our team members, Lindsay Otis:

And here are some still shots that Lindsay took as well:






This exhibit opens to the public on Saturday January 18, and runs through April 13.  Here is the page from PEM's own website about it:  From Here to Ear at PEM

I hope to see you here, or there.
