About Lowell
map
Lowell Massachusetts is located in northeastern Massachusetts about 25 miles north of Boston and is accessible via the major highways of routes 495, 3, and 93 as well as the MBTA commuter rail.

Lowell's National Park serves as a tribute to the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry that was so much a part of New England in the 19th century. The rehabbed mill buildings, the trolley and canal, and the museums are all part of Lowell's Historical tours.

The 19th century mill buildings host small and large companies at unique financial incentives which serves to promote new growth and development in Lowell. The Lowell Auditorium is a 3,200 seat venue which hosts many of the country's best performers at very reasonable prices.

The city's workforce is computer literate and supported by the schools in the district. Lowell is home to the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and Middlesex Community College. The student population creates a profitable atmosphere for retail businesses in downtown Lowell and surrounding neighborhood.

Lowell is built around the Merrimack River and its diverse canal system which adds to its character and appeal. Residents proudly proclaim that Lowell has something for everyone with its unmatched quality of life.

The late Ed McMahon from the Tonight Show was born in Detroit and grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts. He got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series Big Top.

Free with museum admission. Free for members. Historian Dr. Linda Przybyszewski will introduce local audiences to a unique relationship between government and fashion. This research has not previously been presented in New England. This program will also include a book signing. The Lost Art of Dress tells the story of the women who taught Americans how to dress beautifully, efficiently, and thriftily for broadcasts, at women’s clubs, and in magazines. They enlisted the federal government in their efforts through the Bureau of Home Economics. Millions of girls read their books in home economics classes and 4-H clothing clubs. But the Dress Doctors came under attack in the 1960s, and their lessons were lost. Until now.

Orson Lowell: Fashion and Satire
Sponsored by the Parker Lectures. Lecture free; museum admission not included. Lecture by Jill Carey, Associate Professor and Curator of The Lasell College Fashion Collection. During the opening years of the 20th century, illustrative commentary filled magazine pages as a means of exploring humanity within a societal context. Satirist Orson Lowell, a noted illustrator from this period, created fashion-filled compositions that linked dress and wit. Lowell’s love of watching people and their foibles in awkward situations were artfully represented in The Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal, Vogue, and Life. As a satirist, focusing on social life in New York City, Lowell spent limited time in the studio and instead joined a variety of prestigious organizations from which to garner inspiration for his impressive renderings. The vivid nature of fashion documentation in Lowell’s illustrations prove that his understanding of dress went beyond that of American artist Charles Dana Gibson, in conveying lifestyle and interpersonal relationships. In this sense, Lowell’s depictions seamlessly disseminate style within an urban context, frequently balancing the line between humor and controversy. Whether Orson Lowell was an innovator of trend, or an avid follower of la mode, his work provides an incredible opportunity for a dialogue on fashion satire as a means of interpreting social ideals.

A Downton Abbey Fashion Primer, 1912-1925
Sponsored by the Parker Lectures. Lecture free; museum admission not included. Lecture by Madelyn Shaw, Curator of Textiles at the Smithsonian Institution Fashion has a social role. What we wear tells people a lot about who we are, or who we want others to think we are. The time span of the BBC costume drama Downton Abbey encompasses some of the most momentous social upheaval in British and American society, and the show’s costumers have worked hard to use the costumes to define character and to illustrate the place in society that the characters occupy. Join Madelyn Shaw for a look at where–sartorially– the Grantham family, their servants, and their social circle have been and where they are heading as we wait for season 6.
