Flint has an especially strong tradition of celebrating artists and musicians. The Flint Institute of Arts (FIA) is the second largest art museum in the state (behind the Detroit Institute of Arts). The FIA screens foreign and independent films, and offers other programs especially for Flint’s nearly 35,000 college students. Events and exhibits put on by the Flint Creative Alliance, Flint Public Art Project, Flint Peace Mob, and others also continue to bring people and ideas together. In recent years, Flint has elevated monthly Friday ArtWalks to a region-wide ritual.
Flint features an endless stream of creative community discovery projects, such as city-wide scavenger hunts. We even have an emerging experimental theatre scene, highlighted by Shop Floor Theatre Company’s community-focused verbatim theatre projects. There is live music, an art installation, or an unconventional creative event somewhere in Flint nearly every weekend—and increasingly on weekdays.
Flint also has a wonderful farmers market that recently moved to a more centralized location directly behind our First Street Residence Hall. The new Flint Farmer’s Market features fresh local produce and meats, restaurants and over 100 vendors from around the Michigan area.
