The Lanagan Lecture is a major annual lecture named for Sally Lanagan, a beloved volunteer who was deeply involved with the Museum and had a passion for American art, the decorative arts, and historic preservation. To honor Sally and her memory each year, The Sally Lanagan Fund was established in 2012 by her family, as a tribute to Sally’s years of dedicated service to the Concord Museum. Through this endowed lectureship, the Museum offers each year a presentation by a prominent scholar on a topic that is aligned with her interests.
