An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until August 24, 2022

Big Book: Pages for Peace
Pages for Peace is the largest book in the world dedicated to the topic of peace. It is the product of a 12-year project begun in 2004 by middle school students from the Groton-Dunstable Regional School District and their dynamic teacher, Betsy Sawyer. This project was born out of the conviction that young people can make a difference in creating a more peaceful world.
The Big Book measures 12 feet by 20 feet when open and contains thousands of heartfelt letters, colorful artwork, poems, photographs, and other messages of peace from people all around the world. Alongside the Big Book, Fitchburg Art Museum is pleased to present a selection of original submissions of art from students, teachers, politicians, peace activists, veterans, community leaders, and more.

The exhibit runs until Aug. 28, 2022
