When the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center sought a dozen communities to pilot its innovative project “Places of Invention,” the American Textile History Museum saw Lowell as an obvious choice and LTC as an outstanding partner to help them tell the City’s story. After two years of research, interviews, and filming, their collaborative efforts will debut at the National Museum of American History in 2015.
On Tuesday evening, September 30, 2014, you can get a sneak peek right here at LTC. Watch for an email with further details.
The videos will feature historic photos from Lowell’s history as a center for textile production and technology as well as recent interviews with Linda Sou, Executive Director of the Angkor Dance Troupe; Maxine Farkas, Director of Western Avenue Studios, and Susan Halter, Executive Director of the Cultural Organization of Lowell.
This program is presented with the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation as part of the Places of Invention Affiliates Project, made possible thanks to a generous grant from the National Science Foundation.
