Best Bets for Tuesday, March 5

Looking for something to do today? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

Celebrate the completion of “Art CAN Make An Impression,” a citywide elementary art exhibit and community service event from 6 to 8 p.m. to benefit the Harvest of Hope Food Pantry. Salem elementary school students have studied Impressionism over the past few months, and have created a wide variety of work for the show. The event features student art displays, student “living history” portrayals of Impressionist artists, a silent auction of Monet's Japanese Bridge student-created murals, hands-on art activities and an opportunity to tour Peabody Essex Museum's Golden Light exhibit, FreePort (No. 006): Nick Cave exhibit, and an immersive video installation with room to dance. Admission is a can of food, which, in addition to monies raised from the silent auction and T-shirt sales, will be donated to Harvest of Hope. The event will be held at the museum located in East India Square, Salem. The program is funded by the Salem Education Foundation in partnership with PEM. For more information, contact Mrs. Covello at Horace Mann Lab School or Mrs. Tuttle at Bentley.

For 10 years, author and researcher Dr. Jonathan Way has collected data on coyotes living in the eastern part of the United States. From 7 to 9 p.m. At the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, Dr. Way will share his findings, which provide an insight into coyotes' behaviors and habits. He'll speak of his dedication and emotional involvement of working with coyotes, a needlessly controversial animal. Way will also share simple precautions to enable humans to coexist with these wild canines, who are often called “tricksters.” The presentation will be held at the library, 14 Union St., South Hamilton, and the public is welcome to attend.
