PEM/PM: Artopia

It's a go ...

Step into the future of the region's arts scene with an evening of cutting-edge creativity. We invite local artists' organization Creative Salem to celebrate its first year with dynamic future-focused events by their members and friends. Br1ght Pr1mate plays "danceable electro-pop" on hacked videogame components, and the Eternal Lotus Dancers light the night with LED in motion. Get drop-in coaching on managing your online "Artprint" from social media experts, and pose for a futuristic portrait in the Blacklight Photobooth. From Boston, artists Alison Kotin and Risa Horn collaborate on an interactive work exploring how the audience can become the creators of the art of the future through digital technology and physical interaction. Also, welcome a new generation of local artists. The Studio Art program at Beverly High School hosts a pop-up exhibition of photographs, paintings, sculptures, and multimedia inspired by recent exhibitions at PEM, while students from the ArtLink program share the new Salem Public Art walking tour they've developed and lead an interactive mosaic project.

Please note, this is not the FreePort [No. 006]: Nick Cave exhibit that is currently being advertised (that looks good too). This is a one time event.

Admission is free for members and Salem residents (with ID); $10 for non-members. Cash bar. Refreshments available for purchase in the Atrium Café.

    I enjoyed the company, but the event itself was very disappointing. It seemed disorganized. Thank goodness our ticket to the event allowed us to walk through the museum!

    Had a great time. I didn't see Sue and didn't know the others, but the band was fantastic and I can't wait to see my black-light photos!

    I am SO disappointed that I am going to have to miss this. I have a migraine that won't quit. I was hoping I could get rid of it in time to go, but doesn't look that way. :-(

    I live in Peabody on the Salem line, and I love attending the PEM/PM events. It will be nice to meet up with some new people, I attended the 1920s alone, because my friends were unavailable, which was too bad because I thought it was one of the better events.

    I'm planning to delay my trip to NYC to attend; I hope it works out.

    I saw some previews of this, and it looks like it will be really interesting. I live in Salem, so I will go regardless... but would love company!
