Public Art

The Lowell Women’s Week Public Art Committee organizes and implements the annual Lowell Women’s Week Public Art Project. 

Be a Voice for Women | Lowell Women’s Week Public Art 2015

This year is the 20th anniversary of Lowell Women’s Week and our theme this year mirrors that of International Women’s Day: ‘Equality for Women is Progress for All.’ In thinking about a project for Public Art we came to the idea that it is difficult to ignore someone you know and that knowledge can encourage equality and thus progress. In order to broaden understanding of our lives we are asking you to be a voice for women by telling us your story. Your story can be serious, nostalgic, emotional, humorous whatever you need it to be to offer a bit of your voice to the story of Lowell’s women. Your story can be written, a drawing, a collage, there are only three restrictions, it can’t be larger than 8 ½ x 11 (or 11 by 8 ½ if you like), has to be 2D (it will hang in a window downtown during Women’s Week) and you may not use glitter (too big a mess for the people who let us hang your stories in their windows!).

The complete project description is available here: Public Art 2015

Please join us for a public workshop to add your story to our 20th anniversary art project – we need your creativity! All are welcome to join us to enjoy art and community. No experience needed! Attend a free, drop-in gathering February at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum on February 14th from 12PM-4PM. Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/329465960591727/
