Funding will provide partial operating support during construction.FIA, founded in 1928, provides art programs and services to an estimated 85,000 Flint area residents. It serves more than 30,000 school children annually through four educational programs: the Museum Art School, Gallery Lessons, Studio Programs and ArtReach.
