Couturier Ralph Lauren chose Penguin Hall in Wenham as the photographic setting for his 2013 fall collection to reflect his fashions’ Edwardian style. Famed artist and photographer Shelia Metzner, whose work has been featured in exhibits around the world, was on-site shooting photos of the collection. Built in 1929, Penguin Hall, formerly the headquarters for Mullen Communications, is being transformed into Wise Living’s latest senior independent-living community by owner Jim Mullen and developer Chris Wise.
