A Unique Holiday Gift

Looking for a winter activity that makes a great holiday gift? The Hanson Public Library Foundation has the perfect idea!

On Saturday, March 3, 2018, the Hanson Public Library Foundation is sponsoring a trip to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA to see a special exhibit entitled Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style Exhibition. The museum states that “[this] exhibit explores the art, image and style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s understated and carefully designed garments, many never before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs and her paintings, illuminating O’Keeffe’s unified modernist aesthetic and distinctive self-styling.”

There are two trip options available for purchase:

  • Ticket and motor coach transportation: $36 per person
  • Transportation only: $20 per person. The museum offers free general museum admission to active MTA members, PEM members and active-duty and reserve military with ID.

Trip itinerary: The motor coach will depart from Maquan School at 9:00 a.m. and arrive at Peabody Essex Museum at approximately 10:30 a.m.  The motor coach will depart from the museum at 2:30 p.m. in order to arrive back in Hanson at approximately 4:00 p.m. Attendees will be on their own to explore the O’Keeffe exhibit as well as the other general admission areas of the museum.  Attendees will eat lunch on their own; there is lunch served at the museum’s Atrium Cafe or you may bring your own lunch and eat in the museum’s atrium.

The maximum number of participants is 50 for this event, so sign up now!  Download the Registration Form. Payments are nonrefundable. Call the library at 781-293-2151 or email hpl.foundation@gmail.com for further information.

This trip is sponsored & partially subsidized by the Hanson Public Library Foundation, Inc.
