Natural Histories, Photographs by Barbara Bosworth
This exhibition features photographs made over the last 20 years by renowned Boston artist Barbara Bosworth around her childhood home in Novelty, Ohio, and other locations significant to her family. Featuring the oldest and youngest members of the family, these touching images explore the joy of youth and the wistfulness of aging, the nature of memory and the passage of time. Also included are a selection of natural history specimens handed down in the artist's family. This is Bosworth's major museum debut in New England.
The photographs in Natural Histories, Photographs by Barbara Bosworth are among the most successful of Bosworth's career, but most will appear for the first time at PEM.

More About Peabody Essex Museum
Located along Salem's pedestrian walkway, The Peabody Essex Museum's glass-fronted entry offers passers-by a glimpse into the light filled atrium, a piece of art in its own right. The museum's collections aim to integrate art and culture, and include photography and architecture, as well as Korean, Japanese, Indian, Native American, maritime, oceanic, Asian export and American decorative art. One of the museum's most prominent and well known features is its 200-year-old Chinese House, called Yin Yu Tang. The house was deconstructed in China and rebuilt brick by brick in its current location. The Art and Nature Center is another space that is rather unique for an art museum. This area is devoted to bright colors, and tactile and interactive exploration, making the museum a great place to bring the whole family.
