Fitz Henry Lane Society

The Fitz Henry Lane Society marks distinctive levels of membership. Named for American maritime artist and Gloucester born Fitz Henry Lane (1804–1865), the FHL Society was created to give individuals and businesses an opportunity to help the Museum preserve and protect its collections and to support quality exhibits, programming and community outreach. FHL Society members enjoy a deeper connection to the Museum and receive invitations to special events such as previews of new exhibitions, visits to privately held art collections and an annual weekend art tour to a unique destination each year.

There are three levels of membership within the FHL Society: $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000.
