FLINT – The Coolest event of the year is coming to 3 locations in downtown Flint and will support three of the Coolest local art agencies—Greater Flint Arts Council, Buckham Gallery, and Creative Alliance artists at The Lunch Studio.
Join them on March 18 from 5-9 p.m. for this fundraiser that supports the monthly second Friday ARTWALKS. For just $25 ($30 at the door) you get into all 3 locations with silent auctions featuring local artwork, live music, great food and drinks. Enjoy the sounds of Blue Mykals, and the Mike Espy Group at Greater Flint Arts Council, Lee Boillat and L.B. Deverell at the Lunch Studio, and Justin Niall Scanlon at Buckham Gallery.
Tickets are available for purchase at all 3 locations, with proceeds from ticket and art sales benefiting the location where purchased.
The second Friday ARTWALK is a program of the Greater Flint Arts Council. Greater Flint Arts Council (GFAC) programs and services are designed to engage the community in creative processes, support the work of Michigan artists, develop sustainability in arts agencies throughout Genesee County and bordering communities, aid in the development of new programs and new careers in the arts, increase awareness of the vast number of artistic/cultural offerings, enhance arts education at all levels, stimulate local economic growth and showcase to the nation the beauty and livability of the greater Flint community. GFAC provides support services and we are also presenters as we strive to create professional venues for Michigan artists to build their careers and enhance economic development. At GFAC we believe that emerging art can transform our community, and we can be instrumental in creating an environment where art can emerge.
