Lowell Walks: Public Art Collection
August 6, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
with Paul Marion and Rosemary Noon
In the 1980s, monumental sculptures by artists with national and international reputations began showing up downtown. Each artwork in its own way is a commentary on one of the themes of the national park: labor, technology, water-power, capital, and the industrial city. See the sculptures up close, hear about the controversies, and learn the story-behind-the-story of this $1 million collection. Paul Marion is a writer and president of the Lowell Heritage Partnership; Rosemary Noon is Assistant Director of the Lowell Plan, Inc., and a creative economy consultant. They managed the design selection process and installation of many of the artworks—and lived to talk about.
