An Equal Opportunity Lie

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 27

In 1967, Flint Mayor Floyd McCree, resigned his appointed position, stating, “I refuse to live an equal opportunity lie.” He did so in protest of the city commission’s defeat of an open housing ordinance. For despite his status as the first African American mayor of a large American city, McCree inhabited what had become one of the most racially segregated cities in America. Using objects and images from Sloan Museum’s collection, this exhibition examines the housing segregation that characterized Flint’s residential development, as well as efforts to wrest the city free from discriminatory housing practices. $9 Adults, $8 Seniors 60+, $6 Youth ages 2-11

Modern art, modernist furniture, and visions of a modern lifestyle appeared on many LP covers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Jazz record covers, in particular, often featured abstract art, midcentury furniture, and modernist graphics, emphasizing a break with the past, and aligning design motifs with innovative sound technologies and the improvisation and arresting time signatures of jazz. These albums suggest that any aficionado of contemporary tastes will want to hear these sounds in hi-fi, and also surround themselves with abstract art and modernist design. FREE

Sifting Through Ashes Docent-Led Tour in Farmington Hills

Mon., March 12, 7-8 p.m. and Sun., March 18, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
phone 248-553-2400
info@holocaustcenter.org

Sifting Through Ashes is an exhibition of works by artist Bruce Gendelman who captures the atrocities of the Holocaust through a series of nine large-scale richly textural oil paintings and 20 photographs. The exhibition conveys the unique and important role of contemporary art in educating new audiences about the Holocaust in the upcoming “post-witness” era, when all Holocaust survivors will be gone. Gendelman’s works were inspired by a 2015 trip to Poland and Ukraine, where he toured Holocaust sites with his sister and brother-in-law, and met with Holocaust survivors, witnesses and deniers. Free with museum admission or membership.
