Visualize Lowell's Black History
We're excited to kick off planning for Visualize Lowell's Black History, a temporary exhibition, with Free Soil Arts Collective!
Last week, Christa of Free Soil Arts Collective facilitated a visioning meeting with a group of community members including Mona Tyree, Maritza Ivette, Maria McDuffie Clark, Thaddeus Miles, Antionoe-Kaye Stephens, Veronica Holmes, Jennifer Balala, and Curtis Ambe. Thank you everyone!
The project will include a pop-up Black History Trail, temporary sculpture, an art walk, Socially Distant Theatre, business directory and kiosk, and art projections. This project is supported by a Commonwealth Places grant from MassDevelopment. Our goal? Revitalizing the downtown Lowell community while showcasing under-told Black stories.
We want to hear neighborhood voices as we begin implementing the project! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you have questions, comments, or just want to hear more!
