PEM Annual Fund
If you experienced the finches' enchanting melodies in from here to ear, J.M.W. Turner's dramatic seascapes, Alexander Calder's poetic mobiles or all of the above, you've experienced the power of art.
Art also has the power to enhance well-being. Working with ARTZ: Artists for Alzheimer's, PEM has developed tours that enable people with dementia to improve their access to memories and verbal expression.
Research has shown that engaging in the arts may help students master other subjects such as reading, math and social studies. ArtLink, PEM's out-of-school learning program, provides gallery tours and related hands-on art projects developed in partnership with North Shore youth organizations.
You have the opportunity to make a real difference. Please donate to the PEM Annual Fund today to support the arts and make these experiences possible.
What is the Annual Fund?
Simply put, the PEM Annual Fund provides a stable source of income to help pay for the museum's needs. These tax-deductible donations from members and friends are pooled to help in a range of ways, from buying after-school art supplies to preparing galleries for new exhibitions. Please help us reach this year's goal of $100,000.
