We will have a number of exhibitions on display in the Everett Mill on symposium day. For example,
- Photography exhibit: The work of photographers Tony Loreti, Mary Beth Meehan, and Mario E. Quiroz-Servellón.
- The Lewis Hine Project: Stories of the Lawrence Children, by Joe Manning
Since 2012, this exhibit has traveled from the Everett Mill to Phillips Academy to UMass Lowell to Lawrence High School to the Nevins Memorial Library in Methuen... and it will be returning to the Everett Mill for the symposium! In it, Joe Manning has pieced together the lifetimes of ten children -- subjects of 1911 Lewis Hine photographs taken in Lawrence, Massachusetts -- through detailed interviews with their extended families. He acquired many photographs and personal stories that bring Hine’s 1911 subjects to life.
- and much more!
