Flashback to the 1960s
New Exhibit Coming This Fall
The Lowell Area Historical Museum is currently working on our next special exhibit “Flashback to the 60’s-a Decade of Change.” Opening this fall, it will explore politics, fashion, music, and special happenings of the 60’s like man landing on the moon. The exhibit will recall what Lowell was doing during this turbulent and ever changing decade.
The 60’s were just fifty years ago and some of you may still have some unique items in your closets and basements. We are looking to borrow artifacts from the community for the two years this new exhibit will be open. We will need: Beatle Cards, Go Go Boots, Beatle Boots, Fringe Vest or Coat, Albums from the 60’s, 60’s Kids Lunchbox, View Master – with Film Card, Love Beads, Clothes from the 60’s, Portable Stereo, Transistor Radio, Herman Miller Chair, Advertising Artwork, Die Cast Cars from the 60’s – (Muscle cars), Toys from the 60’s – Barbie, GI Joe, Games, Tonka Trucks, Etch a Sketch, etc.
This exhibit will be a distinctive reflection of what life was like in this decade. Even those not yet born in the sixties grew up listening to music from that era and can recall the major events that shaped this decade like, the assassination of President Kennedy, Civil Rights movement, space travel and major changes in technology. This exhibit is sure to have something for everyone, young or old and will be a great one to share with the kids in your life.
Please give us a call at 897-7688 if you can help with any of the items mentioned.
