What is PEM/PM?

Do you like parties?  PEM/PM is for you!

Once each month, on the third Thursday usually, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) here in Salem, stays open late and has an awesome, themed party. If you a Salem Resident, or member of the museum, entry to this party is FREE!!!  If you are not, the cost is nominal -- only $10.

Here is the information on this month's event, and a sneak preview for August:

PEM TURNS UP THE DIAL WITH
PEM/PM: GOING TO EXTREMES

A NIGHT OF HIGH-ENERGY, HIGH-VOLUME EXCITEMENT  
FEATURING BOSTON-BASED VIVA LA HOP
THURSDAY, JULY 17 | 6-9 PM

SALEM, MA —On Thursday, July 17, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) is open late for its monthly evening party series, PEM/PM. Inspired by  PEM’s headlining summer exhibition Turner & the Sea, the upcoming party channels the adventurous spirit of painter J.M.W. Turner to create an evening of high-adrenaline art and exploration.

See demonstrations of extreme sports such as parkour (negotiating an urban obstacle course by running, jumping and climbing) and learn what it takes to push beyond your normal limits. Explore artwork in PEM’s collection that exemplify extreme art making, sample healthy superfoods and extreme coffee and enjoy high-energy music in the Atrium with Boston-based hip-hop group Viva La Hop. Outside in PEM’s Asian Garden, enjoy summer games and cocktails designed to activate the senses.

Members and Salem residents (with ID) free | Nonmembers $10 at the door
Cash bar | Special small plates menu from the Hawthorne Hotel

A look ahead:

Save the Date! The next PEM/PM on Thursday August 21 is Throwback Game Night. Travel back to the arcades and rec rooms of the '70s and '80s with an evening dedicated to retro gaming! Challenge your friends in games of skill and chance -- from tabletop and social games to vintage Atari, Twister, Sorry and Pac-Man. Experiment with game design in the Maker Lounge and invent original game art in the Create Spaces.
