      Join us in November for the PEM Gala! Revel in the magic and explore the mysterious at a dazzling evening of dinner, dancing and art experiences, themed around our upcoming exhibition Conjuring the Spirit World: Art, Magic, and Mediums.

      This event provides valuable funds for the inspiring programs, exhibitions and initiatives PEM offers each year.

      6–8:30 pm | Dinner, Live Auction and Paddle Raise for PEM Initiatives
      8:30 pm–midnight
      | Immersive After-Party

      This year’s gala will honor Stuart W. Pratt, PEM’s former Chair of the PEM Board of Trustees (2020-2024), for his nearly 40 years of generous service to the Essex Institute and the Peabody Essex Museum.
