      See how artists are drawn to water as a compelling medium.

      Ripple Effect, in PEM's interactive Art & Nature Center, highlights water as a medium for artistic expression and hands-on exploration. Visitors encounter water in its different states — solid, liquid and gas — as they investigate artworks inspired by rivers, geysers, snowflakes, fog and more. Water's allure to contemporary artists as a creative medium is compelling, especially in relation to the unique, life-giving properties of this substance we so often take for granted.

      Support provided by the East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum and the museum's Art & Nature Committee.
