LYNN — “Night Fever” struts into Lynn Museum/LynnArts, 25 Exchange St., on Friday with a disco-themed evening to support Lynn Museum/LynnArts’ major fundraising initiative.
The 7 p.m. event is almost a sellout, said Museum/LynnArts Executive Director Drew Russo.
Inspired by the 40th anniversary of the film classic, “Saturday Night Fever,” the evening will feature music from the pulsing disco era, dancing, and great food and drink courtesy of the Party Specialist — all in support of Lynn Museum/LynnArts.
“Night Fever” also features a short live auction and a number of our LynnArts resident artists will be opening their studios for guests to experience work artists create on a daily basis at 25 Exchange Stt.
The evening’s fun celebrates an exciting year for the Lynn Museum/LynnArts including exhibits.
“The Vision Place of Souls,” currently showing at the Museum, features Civil War art by Lynn resident and nationally acclaimed artist Jeff Fioravanti on exhibit through Dec. 22.
During the year, Lynn Museum/LynnArts embarked on a series of conversations with local legends who shared stories of some of the country’s most prominent historical figures.
Lynn Museum/LynnArts expanded collaborations with Greater Lynn Senior Services, North Shore Community College and Lynn Public Schools, and reenergized its curatorial committee at LynnArts with a full schedule of exhibitions featuring artists from around the region.
Lynn Museum/LynnArts enjoys the support of a growing number of local residents and businesses, including Old Neighborhood Foods, Wayne Alarm, Susan Keats, the Boyd family, General Electric, GE Good Neighbor Fund, Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development, the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation, Community Credit Union,
Meninno Construction, John’s Oil, Nancy and Brian McCarthy, Steve Rima, Maura Brown, Sandra Forziati, John and Patrice Tierney, Private Home Health Care, and a host of other sponsors and contributors.
