UTICA, N.Y. -- Students at the Midtown Utica Community Center celebrated World Anthropology Day Wednesday.
The event is founded by the American Anthropological Association and is celebrated at more than 100 institutions throughout the country.
In Utica, day's activities included art and a Korean Cooking Workshop. Anthropology professor Kathryn Stam of SUNY Poly gave an interactive lecture about how important culture is to our community.
"Everything that we do here is a way of celebrating culture and welcoming people and recognizing the how important culture is with everything we are doing here,” said Stam.
This event gave students the opportunity to learn about other cultures.
