We would pick a location that has changed and perhaps needs attention. We would find historic photos (with rights purchased or donated) and make a contest of painting interpretations of the historic streetscape in that location. We would create a small display at that location. We would also offset costs by creating postcards of the photos and artwork. These could be sold in stores in Lowell.
Remind Lowell of history. Use lessons of the past to inspire the future of an area. Draw attention to an underutilized location.
