Welcome Flag Installation
We are inviting artists to create unique and beautiful Flags for the Welcoming Week Lowell events which will take place September 13
- 22, 2019.
Now in its second year, Welcoming Week brings together Immigrants, refugees, new arrivals and native Lowellians to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone to our vibrant and culturally rich city.
Beautiful artist made flags will serve to showcase the talent and energy of our artistic community with a message of welcome and inclusion. 25 flags are available, and will create a beautiful collaborative installation when gathered and displayed.
