Lowell National Historical Park Celebrates Anniversary with a National ExhibitionExhibit Dates: May 7, to June 10, 2016
Reception: Sunday, June 5, 2:00 to 4:00 PM
The National Park Service turns 100 years old on August 25, 2016! In celebration of the centennial, the Brush Art Gallery and Studios in partnership with Lowell National Historical Park is exhibiting contemporary art in a juried exhibit, held at the Brush Art Gallery and Studios. Storytelling has been a part of our shared cultural heritage for generations. It brings people together, imprints pictures on their minds, and fosters meaningful connections with history, culture, and the natural world around us. The unique treasures that make up our beloved National Park Service are as diverse as we are; from historic homes, trails, battlefields, and cemeteries to bustling urban centers, canal ways, recreation areas, and seashores. In response to the NPS Centennial “Find Your Park” campaign, we asked artists to submit their personal connections. Here is what “Telling American Stories: Celebrating 100 Years of the National Park Service” means to them!
This exhibit has one of my images in it. I am so incredibly happy to be a part of this very special exhibit. I absolutely love national, state, county, and city parks. I even love things that are not necessarily parks. I love the outdoors and nature and the beauty of it all. My image To Where is in this exhibit. If you are in the Lowell, Massachusetts area check out the gallery that is actually located in a national park! How freaking amazing is that!? The show runs until June 10th. Happy Birthday National Parks!!!
