Hygge Celebration
Sunday, December 8th    2:00pm - 3:30pm

"Why not follow the Danish example
and bring more hygge into your daily life?"

Hygge:  'A quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).'

Join us for a relaxing environment of dim lights, mellow music, and simple crafts with warm tea, coffee, and danishes.

For the third year, we will display a juried exhibit of artwork that is smaller than 11" in diameter.  In hopes of spreading the joy of art to others, works for sale must be priced less than $100.  Even if you don't buy anything, come see and enjoy the work of the talented and passionate local artists from our area.


This exhibit will hang until January 2, 2020.

Featured Venues for December

Fitchburg Art Museum (FAM)

The Fitchburg Art Museum (FAM) is one of the most treasured cultural institutions in Central New England and serves the cities of Fitchburg and Leominster, as well as the surrounding communities in North Central Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.  FAM was founded in 1925 through a bequest of artist, collector, and educator, Eleanor Norcross. 

In 2012, FAM began its rotating contemporary New England artist exhibition program, thus connecting the strength of its historical collections with contemporary art practices.  Each rotating, contemporary exhibition is accompanied by an interactive educational exhibit in the Learning Lounge, where visitors young and old can learn about what they are seeing in the galleries and better understand their own reactions to the exhibits.

FAM is continuing to work towards a goal of becoming New England’s first fully bilingual (English/Spanish) art museum by seeking to add bilingual printed collateral, website, social media, and docent tours.

The Friends of the Lunenburg Library are eligible to request Museum Passes to many museums, zoos, and living environments throughout the State.
Join the Friends today and experience these cultural activities.
