An Evening with Pete Souza

Mon., Feb. 19, 6:30 p.m.

If a picture is, in fact, worth a thousand words, then the work of photojournalist and former chief official White House photographer for both presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama could fill anthologies. Souza, who captured Obama’s most private moments, gave us the now iconic image of the president sitting on the same bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat in 1955. The bus is now located in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, where Souza will be in attendance to share intimate stories spanning his career. He'll also discuss his latest book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait. $42.50+

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.

The Art of Containment — Vessels from the Sidney Swidler Collection

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through March 31

Sidney Swidler’s work as a modern architect helped train his eye to pick up the essential elements of form, texture, glaze selection, craftsmanship, and artistic intent, which he used to collect nearly 1,000 piece of contemporary ceramic art. In 2010, he donated around 800 of those pieces to California’s Crocker Art Museum. Seven years later, he gave 100 pieces to the FIA, a gift that resulted in this exhibit. Hours of the museum are: Monday-Friday: 12 p.m.-5 p.m., Saturday: 10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.-5 p.m.

An Equal Opportunity Lie

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 27
phone 810.237.3450

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
