Ghost Sign Projections

Idea:

Lowell has many “ghost signs” on buildings where you can see remnants of a beautiful, painted, historic advertisement. Restoring them probably isn’t feasible in the short term, but we could recreate the sign on a computer and use a projector to throw the image up on the building in its original location at night.

Benefit:

Captures an interesting fragment of lost history, adds interesting nighttime feature making Lowell feel more active and alive after dark, and builds interest in possible larger project to restore.

  1. Sounds like a great idea to emphasize Lowell historic buildings, and make them pop up over others, making people to always recognize them or to get the right attention of the new people who moves to Lowell.
