Due to the extreme winter weather conditions, today’s Public Art Reception has been RESCHEDULED to Monday, March 11 from 5-8PM. We’d appreciate it if you could spread the word among your networks, AND, please mark this new date and JOIN US — it will still be held at Lowell City Hall, 375 Merrimack Street, right in the lobby of the building.
We’re ALL looking forward to the first day of spring, which is just around the corner! Be well, and we look forward to seeing all of you on Monday the 11th!
Visit our LWW Public Art Facebook Album and see some amazing “Female Forms”! These public art works were debuted today at the 18th Annual Lowell Women’s Week Breakfast to much excitement. We hope you will Mark Your Calendars for Monday, March 11th for the Official Public Art Reception at Lowell City Hall from 5PM-8PM!
A total of 22 separate groups produced public art pieces, which include both the wooden “Female Forms” and lifesize paper forms. Thirteen of the wooden forms are currently on exhibit in the lobby of Lowell City Hall — they’ll remain there through March 31st, so PLEASE stop on in to take a closeup look!
