It has certainly been quite some time since our last update. Our apologies. Things have been crazy here in Fitchburg!
We would like to start off by saying a huge thank you for all of your continued support. Although we no longer have a storefront to call home, we continue to spread the word of our mission and support other local art and cultural organizations. Within the coming months we strive to grow into our next phase.
As you may know, Fitchburg has been making some really great progress. Some of our own in-house artists have branched off and created the wonderful Revival Gallery in the Theater district of Main Street. The Fitchburg Art Museum has had a continuously growing presence. BF Brown middle school is in its beginning phases of being turned into artist live-work space. The Stratton Players are in the process of fundraising and rebuilding their playhouse.
We are super excited about this progress! All we ever wanted was to at least plant the seed for cultural growth Downtown and in Fitchburg overall. We will continue to grow with and support Downtown Fitchburg with you all!
