APRIL/16
Strike a Pose: Art and the ‘80s

Grab your BFF and travel back to the 1980s! Let your inner Madonna or Boy George come to life with Glam Makeovers by experts from Salem's Rouge Cosmetics, design Flashdance-inspired sweatshirts and create your own friendship bracelets and ribbon barrettes. Then show off your new look in our photo booth. Further creative activities include a Graffiti Wall -- grab a Sharpie and pen your own tag -- and the chance to build Keith Haring-inspired action figures. The Atrium will transform into a dance party as Boston-based DJ Amphibious spins the decade's greatest hits on vinyl while the Hawthorne Hotel crafts up signature '80s cocktails. PEM/PM also provides visitors the chance to explore all of the museum's galleries after hours.
