Making Connections: The 40th Anniversary of Lowell National Historical Park

image Exhibit runs: September 22 to November 3, 2018
Reception: September 29, from 2 to 4 PM


Lowell Gallery Partners with Lowell National Historical Park
As a longtime partner, the Brush Art Gallery and Studios is proud to host “Making Connections: The 40th Anniversary of Lowell National Historical Park.” Forty years ago, Congress established a National Historical Park in Lowell, Massachusetts. This exhibition, featuring objects from Lowell National Historical Park’s collection, celebrates the park’s anniversary. These objects enable us to reflect on the past, present, and future of Lowell and the Park.

Themed sections of the exhibit include: Before the Park, an introductory section of pre-Park objects; Making the Park, Lowell’s physical restoration; Telling the Story, education and interpretation; Living Lowell, Lowell Folk Festival and other cultural features; and The Future Park, visitor interactives and future plans and proposals. In addition to historical items, the exhibition also includes interactive elements and commissioned renditions of a futuristic Lowell National Historical Park.
