2014 Loan Exhibition

Fresh Take,
Making Connections at Peabody Essex Museum 

Sponsored by Chubb Personal Insurance for the 18th Consecutive Year

The Winter Antiques Show’s 2014 loan exhibition celebrates the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) in Salem, Massachusetts.  For the 60th annual Winter Antiques Show, which coincides with PEM’s 215th birthday, we present a microcosm of the PEM experience. The exhibition is comprised of a selection of paintings, sculptures, textiles and works on paper across the spectrum of our collection, offering a celebration of global connection that encourages discourse, evokes emotion and ignites curiosity. 

One of the oldest and fastest growing museums in the U.S., PEM was founded in 1799 and is currently undertaking an endowment campaign. When completed, PEM will rank among the top 10 art museums in the nation in terms of gallery space and total endowment.  The museum's collection showcases an unrivaled spectrum of American art and architecture as well as outstanding Asian, Asian export, Native American, African, Oceanic, maritime and photography collections. In addition, the museum offers a vibrant schedule of changing exhibitions, performances, an interactive education center, numerous green spaces, period gardens and 22 historic properties, including Yin Yu Tang, a 200-year-old house that is the only example of Chinese domestic architecture on display in the United States.
