The Project:

Inspired by the efforts of those who love Lowertown to ensure that knowledge of and connection with the past remains strong during times of growth, our project offers a tangible link between places, history, and people. During a guided bronze pour in Mears Park, participants will explore a new skill while interacting with historical imagery connected to the places, events, and people that make Lowertown unique. The pour will yield small tokens bearing imagery on one side and directions to an informational and mapping website on the other. The tokens will then be scattered throughout Lowertown to be discovered, documented, researched, and re-hidden by others. Designed to connect and teach, our project is an embodiment of the carefully cultivated relationship between past, present, and future that is making Lowertown a hub of dynamic, creative energy.
