The Power of a Post-It

On Friday, March 30th a group of us from the GLCC, City of Lowell, Center City Committee, Merrimack Valley Sandbox and UMass Lowell decided to take our Cash Mob idea Post-It style. We wanted to beautify the space at 43 Market Street with Post-It public art, inviting people to leave their mark on this great city. It’s really a simple concept with a huge impact… What do you Love about Lowell?

This is what my bright pink Post-It boasts:

The group of us placed our Post-Its and through the power of Social Media the wall of colorful sticky paper has continued to grow.  We even got recognition on Howl in Lowell (click here for the article).

This is what our Facebook fans had to say about their love for the Mill City:
