    Art along the North Shore (day trip)

    Melissa Renn, Research Associate, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums

    Discover three of the North Shore’s fascinating arts destinations on this daylong excursion. We will begin at Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, which overlooks picturesque Gloucester Harbor. Designers Henry Davis Sleeper and Halfdan M. Hanson decorated dozens of rooms in a variety of historical and literary themes. We will continue to the Cape Ann Museum and tour its extensive collection of maritime and landscape paintings by such prominent 19th- and 20th-century American artists as Milton Avery, Fitz Henry Lane, and John Sloan. Following lunch, we will spend the afternoon at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. The oldest continuously operated museum in the United States, the PEM is home to one of America’s foremost collections of Asian art. We will explore highlights of the permanent collection as well as temporary exhibitions.

    $170 (members $135). Bus will depart from and return to the Arthur M. Sackler Museum. Fee includes bus transporation, admission, lunch, and all gratuities.

    Space is limited. Members will receive invitations in the mail. To register, email am_membership@harvard.edu or call 617-495-4544.
