We would pick a location that has changed and perhaps needs attention. We would find historic photos (with rights purchased or donated) and make a contest of painting interpretations of the historic streetscape in that location. We would create a small display at that location. We would also offset costs by creating postcards of the photos and artwork. These could be sold in stores in Lowell.
What Once was Here: Display of Historical Streetscape Pictures and Paintings at that Location
Remind Lowell of history. Use lessons of the past to inspire the future of an area. Draw attention to an underutilized location.
I am so happy that my idea was brought up for some future discussion. Lowell has a very rich history and I think that should be made available to the public.
Thank you so much for bringing this up. Can’t wait to get a painting of the old Lowell
