The Community Gallery at the Fitchburg Art Museum is reserved for the exhibition of works of art from programs sponsored by schools, community organizations, and artist groups in Fitchburg, Leominster, and the surrounding cites and towns in our region. FAM is dedicated to serving, enriching, and celebrating the arts, culture, and education in our local and regional communities.
The Community Gallery is located on the first floor of FAM’s Harlan K. and Elsie D. Simonds Building, and includes 80 running feet of exhibition space. When necessary, Community Gallery exhibitions may extend into the Simonds Building Lobby to accommodate the display of large works of art.
