Winterfest 2023 Recap

For the 2nd year in a row, Mosaic Lowell sponsored an Arts Market and Youth Mural Competition during the City of Lowell’s Winterfest.

Held in Lowell Memorial Auditorium on Friday and Saturday, February 18 and 19, the bustling Art Market included 50+ vendors who offered a wide variety of high quality arts, crafts, jewelry, and more. Tunes from Spins & Needles DJs and Mill City Rags band kept things lively.

On Saturday, teams of young artists from seven Lowell clubs and schools participated in the Youth Mural Competition by live-painting their vision for: Coming Soon – What would you add to Lowell?

All works were amazing, so judges Mayor Sokhary Chau, Brush Gallery Director Jim Dyment, and artist Gwendolyn Lanier had their work cut out to decide the winners.
