Over the Christmas holiday, we visited the Flint Institute of art, primarily for our grandchildren to see the special video art exhibition. That exhibit is excellent. While there, we also toured the permanent collection and found it to be very well done. The staff is particularly friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed a light lunch while at the FIA.

Go in and look at the lobby. It is the interesting part of the building. The staff is stuck up, and not very friendly or welcoming. I had the opportunity to meet with a couple of the people working the business side of this company as well, all with the same attitude. Two volunteers I came across were the most... More

We check out the FIA on a regular basis as they bring in different exhibits several times a year. Currently featuring video games as art with a historical perspective as well. Very well done for both kids & adults.

FIA is not large but it is is first-class. The permanent collection covers a wide variety of art and includes several pieces I'd love to look at everyday. Parking is plentiful. Other cultural activities are next door. When I visited only the special exhibit had a fee; the regular galleries were free.

Open 7 days a week and free on Saturdays, The Flint Institute of Arts truly has something for everyone. Located in the heart of Flint's cultural center, the museum exhibits and collections are hands down fantastic (2nd largest in Michigan). My personal favorite things about the FIA are the exhibits, the FOAM films & documentaries on Friday and Saturday nights,... More
