DIY Lowell was founded in 2015 by two community members after extensive discussions with leaders across the city. We are a grassroots group dedicated to helping community members make small-scale projects and events happen together. We connect people with ideas to funding, technical assistance, and most importantly to one another. Ghost signs are fading, historical signs on brick buildings. We’re bringing these signs back to life! We’ll share photos, stories, and facts about the signs. The centerpiece will be an illuminated, animated projections of a sign on a building. Sales of postcards and special soap inspired by our first sign, the J.C. Ayer Co., will help fund this free exhibition.
