About this grant

This grant to the Flint Cultural Center Foundation will support several capital improvements to the buildings on the Flint Cultural Center campus — Whiting Auditorium, Sloan Museum, Buick Gallery, Longway Planetarium, and Bower/Flint Youth Theatre. There continues to be ongoing maintenance needs caused by the aging of these 40+-year-old buildings to keep them in good repair and up to current building codes. Improvements will include several code and safety-related upgrades, as well as repairs to correct water drainage problems in the Fleckenstein Garden and maintenance to the roof of the Buick Gallery.
