Over 300 guests, including the museum’s East India Marine Associates and Corporate Partners, recently attended the opening reception of PEM’s headlining summer exhibition, Fabergé Revealed. The Archduke Geza von Habsburg — a contributing scholar to the exhibition — and his wife were in attendance. Also in attendance were Alex Nyerges, director of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which organized the exhibition, and Michael Head, executive vice president of Fabergé, Inc. Guests sipped champagne, enjoyed a special performance by dancers of the Ballets Russes Cultural Partnership, had their portraits sketched in the galleries and, of course, had ample time to explore this stunning new exhibition.
