Community input sought for ArtUp Lowell project

LOWELL — Bring ideas to beautify Lowell with more murals to a community input session on Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Armand P. Mercier Center, 21 Salem St. A light dinner will be served, followed by a conversation about locations and themes for new murals in The Acre neighborhood.

“This project will belong to the residents of Lowell,” said Project LEARN Executive Director LZ Nunn, “which is why we’re asking for guidance on what kind of art and imagery reflects their community, culture and heritage.”

In 2019, Project LEARN developed ArtUp Lowell to leverage the city’s creative assets to launch neighborhood art and placemaking projects celebrating Lowell’s diverse communities. Since fall 2021, 10 local and international artists created large-scale murals across the downtown area and on the UMass Lowell and Middlesex Community College campuses.

To register, visit bit.ly/3jnC1gD. For information, email tarahong@projectlearninc.org.

In the event of inclement weather, a snow date has been set for Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Mercier Center.
