Artist: Robert Cummings (1990)
These three pieces of art are derived from Lowell’s industrial symbols and are intended to be objects for seating and climbing. Sculpture one is a six-ton silhouette of Francis Cabot Lowell who was the early textile manufacturer and whom the city is named after. Sculpture two is a tipped mammoth thread spool mounted on a granite base. Sculpture three is a saw-toothed horizontal piece.
