The Mass Transportation Authority has worked with the Greater Flint Arts Council for over ten years through the successful “Federal Design and Art in Transit” program. The program helps local communities include art as an integral part of the design of transit facilities throughout the United States. Working closely with the Greater Flint Arts Council, the program has brought new life to MTA facilities with artwork created by successful Michigan artists. The artworks grace the walls and exterior spaces of MTA’s various buildings and centers across Genesee County. The collection of art reflects the relationships between people and public transportation. Each individual service center has a specific theme attached to it, so that throughout the building and grounds, continuity flows through the artwork. Through a successful partnership with the Greater Flint Arts Council, Michigan artists have created beautiful pieces that contribute to the quality of life of Genesee County residents, giving them the ability to view various mixed media, including hanging and standing sculptures and paintings. The community is fortunate to have a wonderful agency such as the Greater Flint Arts Council.

This organization provides a great presence in the center of town for both artists and those who enjoy art. I enjoy the inclusive way the staff welcome artists and give them opportunities to share their work both in the monthly art displays and at various local sites. I participated in several small classes at the center that widened my experience and enriched my life. Thanks, GFAC, for continuing to shine and encourage us all. If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could provide more classes, extend its services, and expand art activities with children and adults. In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are a lack of funding and of public awareness of all they provide. One thing I'd also say is that being downtown is great, but some who might come to evening functions are afraid to go into the area after dark.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the quality of its art displays and its encouragement of the arts in the Flint community, including its informative website.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the opportunity for others to try new art forms with small classes and demonstrations of new techniques.

GREATER FLINT ARTS COUNCIL has been one of the pillars of the city of Flint Renaissance. this very dedicated arts council has always seen the cup a half full to completely full. They are always there for the artists with programs, encouragement, kindness and compassion. (sometimes it is not easy to be an artist) They have consistently put on one of the best art events every single month for years and years. They run the gallery and council professionally and are always striving for a way to do things better..to serve the artists and community better. This is a very tenacious bunch of people who seem to eat, sleep, and breathe art in every venue. They bring out the best in the people in this community who have even the tinest bit of creativity in then. They help that art spirit and assist in nuturing it in anyone who wishes. Greater Flint Arts Council workers go beyond the call of duty!!!!!!! This is great place!!!

As a Michigan artist, I find the Greater Flint Arts Council a valuable resource in providing exhibit venues for my art work, assisting me in building my art career and providing assistance in acquiring grants. Also, the GFAC, through their monthly newsletter,provides information on galleries, stores and juried art shows to which artists can submit and display their art work. As a member of another art organization,I find that the Greater Flints Arts Council is very helpful in providing other art organizations with assistance in the growth of the art organization, assistance in special community projects and assistance in grants. One example of a project which the GFAC assisted another art organization was the Deer-In-Lapeer art project. The GFAC assisted us in organizing the project and acquiring a grant to fund the community art project. The staff at the GFAC is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I find that artist members of the GFAC are also friendly and helpful. I highly recommended the GFAC to other artists when considering an art organization to join. I also recommend attending the art shows and artists receptions to all my friends and family. If there were more than five stars in the rating system I would recommend atleast ten stars for the GFAC!
