Fredericksburg Area Museum Announces the Sixth Annual Merry Trees Exhibit
The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is pleased to announce the sixth annual Merry
Trees exhibit. FAM’s gallery spaces will be filled with fifteen miniature trees decorated by the
second-grade students at Hugh Mercer and Lafayette Elementary Schools. Each tree is inspired
by a children’s book the students have read in the classroom.
FAM is excited to continue this partnership with Fredericksburg City Public Schools. This
exhibition is a celebration of art, literature, the holiday season, and Fredericksburg’s
elementary students. Merry Trees will be on display at the FAM (907 Princess Anne St,
Fredericksburg, VA) from November 20th through December 28th, 2021.
We invite everyone young and old to come to the FREE Merry Trees Open House on Friday,
. From 5pm – 7:30pm, visitors will have an opportunity to see each class’s tree,
participate in a family holiday I Spy game, and visit with Santa in the museum’s galleries.
As we continue to work to keep our community safe, attendees are required to wear a mask,
regardless of vaccination status, and maintain social distancing.
For more information, please either contact Theresa Cramer at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit us
at www.famva.org. The FAM collects, researches, interprets, teaches, and preserves the
history, heritage, and culture of the Fredericksburg region. We serve a diverse community
through a commitment to inclusion, integrity, credibility, and relevance. We will facilitate an
understanding and appreciation of how the acts of those who preceded us have shaped this
community and the nation at large providing both lessons and inspiration as we work together
to forge a greater community
