These brochures represent exhibitions that took place at or in association with the Mogan Cultural Center over the course of several decades. They demonstrate a long standing effort to preserve and share Lowell's diverse cultural heritage through its many stories. While the exhibits have come and gone, the brochures remain to provide compact summaries in a variety of subject areas and time periods. They also serve as a stepping off point for further inquiry and research.
Since opening in 1989, the mission of the Patrick J. Mogan Cultural Center has been to "tell the human story of Lowell" "through community-sponsored exhibits, projects and programs. The Center today forms a bridge between the city, its community groups, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and Lowell National Historical Park, with a focus on playing a positive role among groups and advancing cultural and historical activities within the city."
