Lawn at North 7th Street
and New York Avenue

June 25 - September 3, 2015

Converted from a barrier separating downtown entertainment and cultural organizations into a green, walkable space connecting these amenities, the site of the former Boston Store became a welcoming destination able to host arts and cultural events, community gatherings and the Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series staged on M.I.K.E., a unique portable stage sculpted from a grain bin reflecting Sheboygan’s dedication to the arts.

The series included pre-concert activities such as hands-on art activities, printmaking with Drive by Press and dance lessons. In addition, a different community organization from Sheboygan was highlighted at each concert.

Presented by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, a nonprofit art museum, in partnership with the City of Sheboygan and Sheboygan Squared.
