Welcome Mural Project: Calling all Lowell artists for a public art mural project at the North Common amphitheater!
COOL, in partnership with ACTIONacre, Coalition for a Better Acre, Western Avenue Studios, and the Boys and Girls Club, seeks local artists to paint murals on the steps of the North Common amphitheater!
Details: 26 mural spaces are available (on the riser of each step) measuring 12 inches high by 16 feet long. Each mural will feature one of forty languages depicting the word “Welcome.” Stencils and paint will be provided.
