Love for All Seasons

“There are as many loves
as there are hearts.”
Leo Tolstoy

This special exhibition by Elaine von Bruns is about love’s many forms–romantic love, married love, the love between friends, siblings, parents and children, and between people and pets. Valentines and keepsakes from Diane Stern’s private collection sweeten the show.

Go on the Venus Hunt! The Goddess of Love herself appears throughout the exhibition–on window screens, sculptures, a mannequin, pictures, and cartoons.

For everyone’s safety, all visits are limited to 30 minutes, but Love for All Seasons will be on display for several months, so please come and see it more than once!

The exhibition is free and open to the public during regular Salem Athenaeum hours.  Tuesday — Friday: 1 PM – 6 PM and Saturday: 10 AM – 2 PM.
