Back in 2018, the Lowell Cultural Council funded The Mill Board, a year-long project in partnership with Curation 250 which brought artists from all over the United States into Mill No. 5 to paint large-scale murals in front of a live audience. The first Mill Board was painted in May of that year by Portland Maine artist, Ryan Adams in his signature “gem” style of graffiti art. He most recently returned to Curation 250 with an exhibit entitled, “Terrible Two’s” in collaboration with his wife Racheal Gloria Adams. Ryan’s “gem” style paintings, prints and pillows are available at Curation 250 on the 5th floor of Mill No. 5, where that first mural is also still on display.
