SALEM, MA — On Thursday, March 19, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) is open late for its monthly evening party series, PEM/PM.

For Artopia, PEM partners with the Salem Arts Festival and Creative Salem to celebrate the area’s vibrant arts and culture scene. The evening includes music, cocktails and conversation with separate stations for creativity. Contribute to a fiber arts project by knitting spring flowers with the folks from the Salem Arts Festival, sit and sketch with local group Sketch Collective, drum along with Express Yourself, catch Salem Sketches -- short films created right here in Salem -- that screened at Salem Film Fest, create your own instrument with Salem Jazz and Soul and enjoy a 15-minute gallery experience highlighting some “ordinary” gems in the museum’s Japanese art collection.

Food and drink highlights include a talk by local author and meatball aficionado Adeline Myers, who will discuss her cookbook Global Meatballs and prepare a couple of her favorite recipes. Beer lovers can glean creative brewing insights from Newburyport Brewing Company and sample its locally brewed and appropriately named beers: Newburyport Pale Ale, Plum Island Belgian White and Green Head IPA.  

The evening will also feature North Shore-based Ross Livermore Band. A local favorite, the band has toured throughout New England and beyond and was recently nominated for Best in State in the New England Music Awards. According to a music critic, “The tightness of their soul-tinged rock grooves has ignited crowds and dance floors all over the East Coast.” The tightness of their soul-tinged rock grooves has ignited crowds and dance floors all over the East Coast.
