PEM hosted "Down by the Sea!" at Dead Horse Beach in Salem in conjunction with the exhibition Trash Menagerie. More than 75 adults and kids helped environmental artist Kyle Browne create a giant sea turtle sculpture using found natural materials and beach debris. The July 11, 2009, event doubled as a beach cleanup - all the trash was later deposited in trash and recycling bins.
In 2004, PEM partnered with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project and hosted Sights and Sounds of the Silk Road, a series of performances and educational and cultural activities that connected the museum’s collections with other forms of creative response. This video was produced as a result of this initiative.
