  • Here is another special Utica place! You would not think that the Mohawk valley as such a prestigious art museum, but here it is. There are always new exhibits coupled with their great permanent art....  more »
  • I really enjoyed the building space. The ceiling brings in natural light. They have a connected building that has a bakery. There is parking in the rear and on the street. We went to go check out the Tiffany exhibit. It was really cool.
  • Today's adventure at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute was in conjunction with Corning Glass. The folks from Corning Glass did a stellar job capturing your attention from beginning to end with their demonstrations. It was narrated by one of the folks from Corning with history and interesting facts,at the end of the demonstration you were able to buy some of the glass pieces. The amount paid went to help support Munson-Williams-Proctor. Well worth the time to go and experience first hand.
