Museum Open House - The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming

Jay talks with Dan Lipcan, Paula Richter, and Lydia Gordon, all of whom are associated with the Peabody Essex Museum. Dan is the Ann C. Pingree Director of the Phillips Library, Paula is Curator for Exhibitions and Research and Lydia is Associate Curator. They're here today to inform us about the fascinating exhibition entitled The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming which is on display from now through March 20, 2022. During the program, we'll be finding out why and how the exhibition came about, we'll go on a behind-the-scenes tour and, in the process, come to better understand and appreciate the Salem Witch Trials, the lives and roles of some of the prominent individuals, and how the circumstances at that time relate to social injustices today. The curators will also share how fashion designer Alexander McQueen and photographer Frances F. Denny have contributed to the exhibition by building upon their personal connections to some of the notable individuals at the time. Let’s start by meeting our guests and then learning all about The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming.
