Arts in Lowell

The City of Lowell has been committed to the arts and building a thriving arts community since the 1970s. Home to various museums, arts co-operatives, and galleries, Lowell is the perfect home for artists to share their talent, skills, and celebrate the wonderful conversations that result due to creative art pieces.
