‘Ghosts of Lynn’ to Take over Central Square Thursday: Afternoon Traffic Restrictions Will Be in Place

July 21, 2014

The culmination of a months-long art project that also served as a collaboration between Raw Art Works, Centerboard and the Lynn Museum, will be unveiled to the public Thursday afternoon, July 17, and will likely force some change to normal traffic patterns.

“Ghosts of Lynn” is an art project that utilized the talents of Raw Art Works’ local teen artists and an idea to re-create old photographic images of the city, in its current state, both to help the teens connect to their hometown and to shine a light on Lynn’s history.

The project, which will result in a new display of public art in Central Square beginning Thursday, will be unveiled at a public dedication on Central Square from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

As a result, no motor vehicle traffic will be allowed to enter the square from Exchange Street. Wooden barriers will be placed at the following locations: Across Exchange Street from Mount Vernon Street to Spring Street; Across central Square along Union Street from the bus stop to the entrance to the commuter rail platform; and on Union Street at Central; Square, no turn on to Exchange St. will be allowed.

No specific parking restrictions have been announced.
