Salem, MA – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA), announced that the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has awarded a $200,000 grant to the Peabody Essex Museum for implementation of the exhibit, “Empresses of China’s Forbidden City.” NEH grants are “highly competitive and involve a rigorous peer-review process to ensure that the projects represent the highest level of humanities quality and public engagement.”

“I am proud to announce that the Peabody Essex Museum will be receiving a $200,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH),” said Moulton. “The Peabody Essex Museum is a cultural staple of our community. With this grant, the Peabody Essex Museum can continue to educate, enrich, and bring us together through art. I congratulate them on winning this competitive grant and look forward to their continued commitment to making better the cultural fabric of the Sixth District.”

“We would like to thank the NEH for this generous grant, which will support the important international exhibition ‘Empresses of China’s Forbidden City,’ featuring nearly 200 spectacular works of art from the Palace Museum, Beijing, including rare objects never before publicly displayed,” said PEM’s Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo Director and CEO Dan Monroe. “The museum is proud to be able to produce high-quality exhibitions and programming for our community.”
