Residents invited to submit designs to Bag Design Contest

Artists who live or work in Lowell are being invited to submit their original design ideas for consideration in Lowell’s Bag Design Contest. The program will generate a new look for the city’s popular nylon bags, which are distributed throughout the region; one side will feature the original design, the other will show the city’s tagline of “Lowell: Alive. Unique. Inspiring.” All designs submitted should include the artist’s name within the artwork. Deadline for entry is Dec. 7 at 5 p.m.; a winner will be announced in January, with the winning artist receiving a $1,000 prize. For more submission details, e-mail Susan Halter at  or call 978-674-1480.
