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.

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
