PEM to host tasting of historic beers
- A beer tasting in an art museum? Indeed. The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem will host a tasting of ancient and historic beers on Thursday, Aug. 11, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Masterworks that amuse and amaze
- Art Review: Deregulated free markets have rarely produced such likable results as they did in the Netherlands in the 17th century. There, for the first time en masse, artists made paintings to hang on the walls of individual citizens, rather than to grace the banquet halls and bedrooms of monarchs.
