The Art Center's Festival Green

June 16 - August 18, 2016

*2015 Levitt AMP winner

Last summer’s inaugural Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series served as a catalyst for transforming a large, vacant retail store—which blocked foot traffic and separated the downtown district from cultural organizations—into downtown Sheboygan’s new, green, walkable Arts & Culture Plaza. The 2016 Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series will be held across the street at the John Michael Kohler Art Center’s Festival Green, as the city prepares an environmental remediation of the Arts & Culture Plaza to remove buried debris and contaminants left over from a 1980s fire—bringing it one step closer to becoming a place where people of all ages and backgrounds come together and activate their city’s downtown core.

Presented by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (JMKAC), a nonprofit art museum that gives visitors a place to experience critically acclaimed world-class exhibitions, performances and programs.
