Members-Exclusive Special Tour at The Peabody Essex Museum

Join us on Saturday, November 23 at 10 a.m. for a members-exclusive special tour at The Peabody Essex Museum.

Salem’s native son Nathaniel Hawthorne has inspired artists for nearly 200 years — and not just writers. PEM’s new exhibition, The Creative Legacy of Nathaniel Hawthorne: Selections from the Phillips Library Collection, features works of illustrators and authors who are inspired by Hawthorne and continue to reinterpret his stories. Modern-day artist Mindy Belloff tapped into his genius when she designed A Golden Thread: The Minotaur, a contemporary reinterpretation of Hawthorne’s short story The Minotaur, in his children’s book Tanglewood Tales, featured in this exhibition. This show also marks the first exhibition in a gallery dedicated to featuring changing exhibitions drawn from the collections of the Phillips Library. Enjoy an up-close and personal tour of this exhibition with Dan Lipcan, Head Librarian of the Phillips Library.

To register for this free, members-exclusive tour, please email Gareth Benshoff at or call 978-542-1641.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
