PEM offers extended hours during final week of acclaimed Shapeshifting exhibition

SALEM – Thursday and Friday, the Peabody Essex Museum will be celebrating the closing week of Shapeshifting: Transformations in Native American Art with two nights of extended hours. Join the museum from 5 to 9PM for your last chance to experience the exhibition that critics are calling “one of the most thrilling shows you are likely to see this year.”

Shapeshifting is one of the largest Native American Art exhibitions to open in North America in more than 30 years. Nearly 80 works from public and private collections worldwide offer a far-reaching exploration of Native American art as a continuum, juxtaposing historic and contemporary artworks. Through constellations of objects created in a range of media – ­­­­sculpture, painting, ceramics, textiles, photography, drawing, film, video and monumental installation – visual and conceptual connections are drawn between generations of Native people, art traditions and cultures.

The exhibit closes to the public on Sunday, April 29.

Where? The Peabody Essex Museum, East India Square, Salem, MA

When? Thursday, April 26th and Friday, April 27th from 5 to 9PM

Cost? Admission is $10, but is FREE to Salem residents & museum members.
