Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment in Huntsville, Alabama

Lowe Mill is a historic cotton mill of approximately 171,000 sq ft located at 2211 Seminole Drive, Huntsville, Alabama 35805.           
 'In 1900, Arthur H. Lowe of Fitchburg, Massachusetts formed Lowe Manufacturing Co, and began the building of Huntsville’s fifth textile mill. Lowe Mill opened in 1901 with 25,000 spindles that helped to turn locally-grown cotton into woven cloth.  In 1902, Eastern Manufacturing Company built the final large mill in Huntsville, a weaving mill across from Lowe Mill. Lowe Mill and Eastern Manufacturing merged their companies and the two buildings in 1904. The spinning Mill supplied yarns for the weaving mills, where the highest grade ginghams and shirtings were made to supply large clothing manufacturers throughout the nation.'  (Source: Wikipedia)
I put this other shot in because it shows another view of this fabulous painting and notice the little LOVE sign on the table.
'In 2006, Operon Biotechnologies, Inc (now Eurofins MWG Operon) relocated its global HQ and USA production facility to the Lowe Mill’s north wing and Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment in the east and south wings. Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment houses The Flying Monkey Arts Center, Vertical House Records, Susan Knecht Glass Studio & Gallery, Ozaki Fine Art, Amber Brookman, The Wedge–Rita Burkholder, The Dead Workers Party and many more artists. There is a weekly artist market held every Saturday from 12–4 pm and music, film, theatre events every weekend.'  (Source: Wikipedia)
