Celebrating Diversity – Lowell Has It!
July 16 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The many cultural traditions that are part of the rich diversity of the Greater Lowell Area will be available for visitors to enjoy either as workshop presenters, musicians, dancers or food vendors. Many of the workshops are “Make and Take” and on a Drop-In basis. Other workshops, due to limited space require pre-registration. All workshops are FREE.
The centerpiece of this event is the month-long art exhibit “Who We Are: A Celebration of Diversity” being held in the expansive Loading Dock Gallery located at the Western Avenue Community. The Back Door Gallery is featuring an exhibit by Erick Maldonado, “COALO EN LAWRENCE.” In addition to the activities of the afternoon, we are hosting exhibits in three of the min-galleries at Western Avenue.
The 4th Floor Gallery has “What is The Acre” an exhibit from the archives of the Center for Lowell History (UML Libraries), the Pollard Memorial Library, and the Lowell Historical Society. The exhibit in the 3rd Floor Gallery is “Finding Home” a photo essay by photographer Scot Langdon. Scot follows the process of the resettlement of an Afghan Family to Lowell. “City of Immigrants” is the exhibit in the 1st Floor Gallery; a collaboration of three photographers, Jim Higgins, Wendy James and Tory Wesnofske.
There is on-site free parking and free overflow parking at the UML staff parking lot on Wilder Street. The COOL shuttle bus will run between the Wilder Street lot and the Shuttle Stop at Western Ave Studios from 10:45am–6:00pm.
