Information

Join us for IMAGINE the PEM Gala & Auction as we celebrate art, culture and creativity. This year's Gala is inspired by the theme of Imagination. Discover with us how PEM inspires innovation and creative expression in our communities and beyond. Imagine with us immersive environments created just for this night throughout the museum's galleries. The Gala will begin with cocktails, dinner and a live auction then end with a dance party until midnight. It's more than a party; it's an experience.
