Jack Kerouac is buried in Edson Cemetery in Lowell, MA, his hometown and birthplace.
The grave is located in the cemetery at the intersection of 7th Ave and Lincoln Ave.
This project will document the grave site and the objects left as offerings – pens, pencils, bottles of booze, rosary beads – and most important, personal messages including journals, published books, photographs, and short notes.
As the items change, the photographs will record the grave site in a photograph every day for the year of the 100th anniversary of his birth.
