If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Peabody Essex Museum, this coming weekend is a great chance to do so for free! Admission is waived this Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Details are per the Salem Chamber of Commerce.
“PEM is offering free admission over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend in celebration of the opening of our special exhibition Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle. Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle is the first museum exhibition of the series of paintings Struggle: From the History of the American People (1954-56) by the best known black American artist of the 20th century, Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000). Created during the modern civil rights era, Lawrence’s thirty intimate panels interpret pivotal moments in the American Revolution and the early decades of the republic between 1770 and 1817 and, as he wrote, “depict the struggles of a people to create a nation and their attempt to build a democracy.” Click here for more information.”
