Peabody Essex Museum


On the same day as the Hammond Castle we visited the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. This is an art museum featuring art of many different cultures. The favorite for the kids was the garbage art. In the picture the big clam shell was constructed from cigarette butts collected from a beach in Massachusetts. Pretty clever way to use such nasty trash. The butterfly was constructed by old bicycle parts, pots and pans, piano keys, etc. Another favorite part of the museum was the Native American Art. I wasn't allowed to use flash in the museum so most of the pictures came out dark. I posted the best of the ones I took.
