About this grant

The Flint Institute of Arts, located on the Flint Cultural Center campus, features museum galleries, an Art School and studio space, and public areas that engage patrons and attract new audiences from across the region. Students and adults visit the galleries, participate in educational programs, take art classes, or attend events held at the institute. The recent construction of two new galleries and a hot glass studio and foundry has increased regional interest in the Flint Institute of Arts as an arts destination. This grant will provide operating support to enable the grantee to present new exhibits that inspire and stimulate patrons, provide educational programming to area students, offer instruction in various art mediums to people of all ages, and maintain its facilities.
