I am Judith Bessette, President of Lowell Celebrates Kerouac, aka LCK. I am also active in the visual arts community in Lowell, curating art exhibits over the years. I am in contact with an Italian artist named Elia Inderle who has created a “scroll” reflecting Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” scroll, currently owned by James Irsay. I would like to contact someone through D.I.Y. who could create a case for Inderle’s scroll that would be suitable for display at Kerouac Park, and eventually a Downtown Lowell art gallery in 2022, the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Jack Kerouac. I personally have no aptitude for creating a case, just the idea. I assume it would be wooden, perhaps have a device for scrolling a part or parts of the text/images.
Elia Inderle's case and scroll could be exhibited at sites all over the city, bringing information about Lowell born author Jack Kerouac to schools, the Kerouac Commemorative Park, civic clubs, art galleries and other locations around the City of Lowell and beyond.
