O’Connell wins Alex City Jazz Fest Art Contest
The Alex City Jazz Fest committee recently named the winner of its 2016 commemorative poster and T-shirt art contest. The competition encouraged artists to submit artwork to honor the 26th anniversary of the community event.
The AMP is an open-air site, located on the top of one of the rolling hills, high above the shores of Lake Martin. The many acres of open fields surrounding the amphitheater have a rolling topography, including several small streams, and are bordered by the lake and dense woods. The entire area provides a panoramic view of the Big Kowaliga Basin.
As people sit on blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy events, they look down on a 60'x40' state-of-the-art stage, with a panoramic view of Lake Martin as a backdrop. In addition, we have improved road access and parking areas, which are near and offer easy access, day or night. The parking areas are dirt/gravel and grass. There are two restrooms with handicap access. Security is provided to promote and maintain a wholesome family atmosphere.
