Fresh Take, Making Connections at the Peabody Essex Museum is the featured loan exhibition of the 2014 Winter Antiques Show. The installation represents a microcosm of the PEM experience and is comprised of more than 50 paintings, sculptures, textiles and decorative objects drawn from the museum's world class collection. Works of art from diverse cultures and time periods are grouped together, uniting and contrasting objects of creative expression in unexpected ways.

The Winter Antiques Show marks its 60th anniversary as the most prestigious antiques show in America, featuring the "best of the best" from antiquities through the 1960s. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides curators, established collectors, dealers, design professionals and first-time buyers with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by exhibitors.
