American Landscape

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8
,

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.

sloan@sloanlongway.org

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
