LandVest is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Lanse Robb to the Corporate Committee of the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM). “With LandVest’s deeply rooted connection to the arts through its affiliation with Christies International Real Estate and Auction House and a desire for local involvement the alignment was a natural fit”, said Robb. Lanse Robb grew up in a family of artists and art collectors and is currently the top residential sales broker for distinctive properties in Essex County. “I am excited to join the corporate committee of such a high-quality, innovative museum. I look forward to working with other volunteer leaders of the committee and am committed to engage in PEM’s success.”
Founded in 1799, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) presents outstanding works of artistic and cultural creativity in ways that transform people’s lives. The museum’s collection is among the finest of its kind, showcasing an unrivaled spectrum of American art and architecture as well as outstanding Asian, Asian export, Native American, African, oceanic, maritime and photography exhibits. In addition to its vast holding, the museum offers a vibrant schedule of changing exhibitions and an interactive education center. The museum campus features numerous parks, period gardens and 22 historic properties, including Yin Yu Tang, a 200‐year‐old house that is the only example of Chinese domestic architecture on display in the United States. Currently, a comprehensive $650 million campaign is underway to advance PEM’s mission, fortify its endowment, improve infrastructures and build a 175,000-square-foot expansion, set to open in 2017.
“I am honored and deeply committed to the mission of the PEM which does an exemplary job of serving the public through art and education. I look forward to providing the LandVest network of art enthusiasts with updates on PEM exhibitions, events and its expansion program.” – Lanse Robb
