Before visiting Munson, I thought I had to travel to NYC to see some top level art. Then I discovered Thomas Cole’s Voyage of Life paintings and fell in love. Another favorite is “Heroic Evening.”

The Arts Institute has been a cornerstone for the redevelopment of the Oneida Square District. It offers education, entertainment and hosts some really great events. It’s been doing this as long as I can remember
