We’re heading back up to the Peabody Essex Museum, traveling by the fast ferry to Salem, for a private tour of “A Passion for American Art: Selections from the Carolyn and Peter Lynch Collection.” The Lynches were active participants in the groundswell of interest in collecting American art that followed the bicentennial in 1976 and assembled a diversified collection of American paintings, sculpture, furniture, decorative art, and Native American art spanning three centuries. Their broad-ranging collection includes classic American furniture, works by American Impressionist master Childe Hassam, modern furniture master Sam Maloof, Massachusetts folk painter J.O.J. Frost, and pioneering landscape painter Martin Johnson Heade. Also included are works by Georgia O’Keeffe, Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent. Lunch at Turner’s Seafood. Return on the 4:00 p.m. ferry. Meet at Long Wharf-North Pier, on the north side of the Long Wharf Marriott, next to Christopher Columbus Park, at 9 a.m. for our 9:30 a.m. ferry. BHV members: $40 ($25 for PEM members). Guests of BHV members and prospective members: $55 ($35 for PEM members). Trip price covers ferry and admission to and tour of the Museum.
