Join us for our annual meeting (marking our 30th year of operations!) and dinner catered by Phat Cats Restaurant. Our meeting will highlight the progress made over the past twelve months and our plans for 2017 as well as an opportunity to meet museum leadership. We will officially welcome three new Trustees to the organization – Amy Mitchell, Christopher Deorocki, and Abigail Bottome.
Following our dinner meeting join us for an illustrated talk with industrial photographer Jet Lowe.
Jet Lowe is a nationally known documentary photographer who worked for over thirty five years with the National Park Service and the Historic American Engineering Record. Lowe’s photographs create a permanent record of important historic landmarks, engineering structures, and places of work. The scope of and scale of his catalog is dramatic. Lowe has documented early colonial mills and twentieth-century space equipment. His photographs provide a vivid record of work, industry, and innovation in our country.
Lowe was part of efforts in the 1970s to study textile mills in New England. As a result of these efforts, city planners learned about the importance of these buildings and were better able to preserve and adapt these places for new uses.
Lowe will share stories through an illustrated talk highlighting some projects that he found particularly important.
The dinner will begin at 5:30 pm and be held in the High School Cafeteria. Register for the dinner by September 16.
