LIGHT & SOUND, 2018 PEM Gala, Auction & Dance Party

Saturday, November 10, 2018


Join us for LIGHT & SOUND, the 2018 PEM Gala, Auction & Dance Party.

This event provides support for the museum’s education initiatives, exhibitions, and special programs. Our theme this year is inspired by the multi-sensory and immersive world of light and sound. The LIGHT & SOUND Gala will surely provide an evening of inspiration while we come together to celebrate the power of art, culture and community.

The Peabody Essex Museum is delighted to honor Carla and David Herwitz at the 2018 Gala. They are, indeed, remarkable ambassadors for PEM here in the Northshore and around the world. At the Gala we are honored to celebrate, thank and salute them.

Proceeds from the PEM Gala, Auction & Dance Party, provide necessary support for the museum’s education, outreach, and public programs. Your support is appreciated.
