Flint Institute of Arts
The Flint Institute of Arts is the second largest art museum in Michigan and one of the largest museum art schools in the United States. Each year, more than 160,000 people visit its galleries and participate in its programs and services. For 90 years, the FIA has been responsible for acquiring, protecting, and presenting a collection of art and artifacts spanning the globe. The world-renowned collection, which exceeds 8,000 objects, is significant for its depth of important European and American paintings and sculptures, 15th century to the present, and its extensive holdings of decorative and applied arts including important ethnographic study collections dating back five millennia. The FIA promotes the power of the visual arts by providing lifelong learning opportunities to engage and educate a diverse regional audience.
The FIA is committed to making art available, approachable, and accessible to all through a broad range of interpretive programs in order to provide multiple ways of accessing information on the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions through guided tours; lectures and community dialogues; art classes, workshops, and studio demonstrations; gallery, studio, and outreach programs for PreK-12, Head Start, and homeschool students; films and videos; print, audio, and multimedia resources.
