An evening of music, cocktails and conversation
THURSDAY, MARCH 20 | 6–9 PM

SALEM, MA – On Thursday, March 20, the Peabody Essex Museum is open late for PEM/PM, the monthly evening party series free for members and Salem residents.

This month, in collaboration with Salem Arts Festival and Social Palates, PEM showcases Salem's creative scene as local arts groups "take over" the museum. Inspiring activities include creative art making with hula hoops and a spice painting demonstration with the Salem Arts Festival and crafting zines with PEM’s ArtLink participants. Social Palates will offer a social photography “safari” throughout the museum. On view will be highlights from We_Are_Salem, a community collaborative art project, and the work of students in Beverly High School’s  AP Art Program.

The Atrium will also be filled with the sounds of Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket, a dynamic 10-piece funk band, based in Boston, and fronted by powerhouse vocalist Sarah Seminski and Quill, the musical vehicle of Boston-based singer-songwriter and producer Jesse Ciarmataro, who electronically mixes R and B, soul, rap and melodic vocals.

Members and Salem residents FREE | Nonmembers $10 at the door
Cash bar |Special menu on offer from the Hawthorne Hotel

ABOUT PEM/PEM
PEM’s evening parties -- with music and dance performances, food tastings on offer, lectures and art-making stations -- kicked off in the Asian Garden the summer of 2011 and have grown in popularity ever since. On the third Thursday of each month, activities have included celebrating romance in PEM’s Chinese house, dancing the Charleston and learning Indian cooking techniques.



I hope to see you here, or there.
