FLINT – The Buick Gallery will close for repairs Feb. 25. While the building is closed, Sloan Museum plans to continue a long history of displaying historic vehicles at Courtland Center Mall. A date for the exhibition to open has not been set.
From now until February 25, Buick Gallery will display over 30 historic vehicles, including five one-of-a-kind General Motors concept cars. Buick Gallery features vehicles from Sloan Museum’s diverse collection of over 120 vehicles, including cars, carriages, trucks, motorcycles, and more—all with ties to Flint’s automotive history.
Buick Gallery is also home to Sloan Museum’s Perry Archives, which house a wide array of photographs, records and objects chronicling the people and history of Flint and Genesee County, Michigan. The Perry Archives will remain open while the exhibition space is closed. The archive is open to the public for research by appointment only with 24 hours’ notice, Monday-Wednesday. To make an appointment, call 810-237- 3440 or email Collections@SloanLongway.org.
