About this grant
This grant increase will provide additional support for the development and construction of a hot glass studio and gallery space located at the Flint Institute of Arts on the Flint cultural center campus. This new space will add 17,000 square feet to the Flint Institute of Arts’ building and will include stadium seating for 70-100 people. Annually, around 150,000 children and adults visit the galleries, participate in education programs, take art classes, or attend events held at the art institute. This glass studio and gallery will provide patrons a variety of new experiences and is unique in the community. The Flint Cultural Center Corporation, the supported organization of the Flint Cultural Center Foundation, owns and maintains the 33-acre cultural center campus.
