  • Flint Institute of Arts
    Since 1928, the Flint Institute of the Arts (FIA) has chronicled the cultural history of the city and today continues to influence its rebirth. In that time, the museum has been designated as a National Treasure by the President's Committee on the Arts in 2002 and received the Governor's Award for Arts and Cultural Organization in 2007. As a world-class cultural institution, the FIA draws over 120,000 visitors a year to an array of exhibitions, film screening, lectures, educational outreach programs, and family events that enlighten art lovers and celebrate Flint's diversity. Within the FIA's 150,000 square feet of space, stunning gallleries of over 8,000 objects, including sculptures, paintings, and artifacts, tell the story of Flint's past and future. Its libraries and art school prepare the next generation of artists. The FIA also features a video gallery, a cafe and gift shop, a great hall for large events, and a theater for films and lectures.

  • The Whiting
    It would be hard to think of The Whiting as anything less than opulent. Before audiences grab one of the theater's 2,043 seats, they pass through a lobby where a golden sphere hangs suspended. That sphere, completed a year after the theater's founding in 1967, is made up of 675 gold-plated steel branches, stretching 7 feet in diameter, and is valued at $5 million. It's a fitting tribute to the venue's namesake: James H. Whiting, an early pioneer of the auto industry. Although its gold dulled over time?along with the rest of the theater?a renovation in 1999 helped it sparkle once again and continue drawing passersby into its gravitation field.
