GREATER FLINT ARTS COUNCIL
March 10, 2010
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.
