About this grant

This grant provides general purpose support to the Buckham Fine Arts Project, also known as Buckham Gallery. The grantee was incorporated in 1984 by a group of artists who saw the need for a contemporary gallery in downtown Flint. Over the past 30 plus years, the grantee has held more than 300 exhibitions of visual art; poetry readings; performance art events; and dance, music, and film presentations. The grantee showcases local, regional, and international artists. Located in a storefront space on the corner of South Saginaw and Second Streets, Buckham Gallery has expanded programming in the new space including a monthly Open Mic night, family art activities, and events for older adults.
