***2015, 2016 and 2017 Levitt AMP winner
After flourishing for three years—sparking significant investment in the area and bringing people together in the heart of downtown—the Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series returned this summer to energize the city’s beautiful new City Green, connecting the Mead Public Library and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. For the fourth year in a row, the Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series used free outdoor concerts as a vehicle to boost community pride, drive the local economy and revitalize a formerly dormant public space.
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, in partnership with the City of Sheboygan and Sheboygan Squared (Business Improvement District (BID)/Harbor Centre).
