Levitt AMP

Utica Monday Nite

June 25 - August 27, 2018

**2016 and 2017 Levitt AMP winner

For the third year, the Levitt AMP Utica Music Series returned to Kopernik Park—a green space within walking distance of the city's community gardens, the Utica Public Library and the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees—and fueled the city’s social, physical and financial resurgence by bringing together its diverse local and refugee residents to reenergize an underused gathering space and realize its potential as a hub for cultural engagement to create a stronger, more unified community.

Presented by Utica Monday Nite, a nonprofit that promotes a regional arts economy by making the arts and humanities available and accessible to all Utica residents and visitors from the wider region, in partnership with the City of Utica, the Cornell Rust to Green Urban Studio (Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County), the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute (MWPAI), and the DeSales Center.
