Rome – Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi of Utica has announced he is awarding the Rome Art and Community Center a $10,000 State Legislative Grant to complete its pavilion. “This pavilion is on the great lawn of the Rome Art and Community Center, and is used to host theater productions, concerts, and community events. It is a center of cultural activity, not just for Rome residents, but for residents of the Mohawk Valley and beyond,” Brindisi said. “We are thrilled to be the recipient of these much needed funds from Assemblyman Brindisi. These monies will allow for the completion of our beautiful pavilion. In its current state, it is susceptible to damage from wind and the elements. We can now look forward to preserving this structure for generations to come,” said Kelly Fleming, Executive Director of the Rome Art and Community Center. Located at 308 West Bloomfield Street in Rome, the Center welcomes over 5,000 visitors annually, and offers professional art galleries, children’s programming, and a concert series supported in part by the New York State Council on the Arts.
