3D: Focus on the Abstract

At the turn of the 20th century as the modern art movement developed and artists began experimenting with different forms, techniques, and materials, sculptors soon realized that their work did not have to look like anything found in the real world, but rather could be an expression of their emotions or creative process. In contrast to the exhibition on view in the Hodge Gallery, 3D: Focus on the Figure, this exhibition presents sculptures by artists who have strayed away from realistic representation and explored abstraction including Louise Nevelson, Michael Dunbar, and George Sugarman. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, July 25, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

3D: Focus on the Figure

The human form has provided sculptors with inspiration for thousands of years. The very first sculptures created were stylized representations of the human form. In Western Art, the human form has evolved over several centuries from predominantly religious and mythological subject matter to works that come close to abstraction. Traditionally, artists work in materials like metal stone or clay; however, contemporary works incorporate a variety of materials like glass and found objects. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, July 25, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Art Nouveau Innovation: Danish Porcelain from an American Collector

The Art Nouveau period was Danish porcelain’s renaissance, marked by technical and artistic innovations. From 1885 to 1920, manufacturers Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grøndahl reached new heights of artistic achievement, winning numerous awards along the way. Their output influenced the work of companies across Europe and created a global market for Danish porcelain. The objects in this exhibition, amassed over two generations, are from a private collection that spans nearly 250 years of porcelain production in Denmark. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, July 25, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Blue Plate Special

John Miller is known for his larger-than-life glass sculptures of everyday objects. As a young boy, he spent plenty of time with his father at drive-in and roadside diners. The neon signs, glistening chrome tables, and quintessential American cuisine left a lasting impression on the artist. His current studio, located two blocks from old Route 66, provides Miller with constant artistic inspiration. It is one of the most famous roads in the United States and jammed with the type of diners and other small businesses that Miller experienced as a child. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, July 25, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Bo Bartlett: Forty Years of Drawing

Bo Bartlett is an American realist with a modernist vision. His artwork can be classified within the tradition of American realism, celebrating both the commonplace and the extraordinary. Educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Bartlett pushes the boundaries of the realist tradition with his multilayered images. Family and friends are the cast of characters that appear in his dreamlike works. This exhibition presents drawings from forty years of the artist's career (from 1976 to 2016). Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, July 25, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM.

3D: Focus on the Abstract

At the turn of the 20th century as the modern art movement developed and artists began experimenting with different forms, techniques, and materials, sculptors soon realized that their work did not have to look like anything found in the real world, but rather could be an expression of their emotions or creative process. In contrast to the exhibition on view in the Hodge Gallery, 3D: Focus on the Figure, this exhibition presents sculptures by artists who have strayed away from realistic representation and explored abstraction including Louise Nevelson, Michael Dunbar, and George Sugarman.

3D: Focus on the Abstract

At the turn of the 20th century as the modern art movement developed and artists began experimenting with different forms, techniques, and materials, sculptors soon realized that their work did not have to look like anything found in the real world, but rather could be an expression of their emotions or creative process. In contrast to the exhibition on view in the Hodge Gallery, 3D: Focus on the Figure, this exhibition presents sculptures by artists who have strayed away from realistic representation and explored abstraction including Louise Nevelson, Michael Dunbar, and George Sugarman. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, August 1, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

3D: Focus on the Figure

The human form has provided sculptors with inspiration for thousands of years. The very first sculptures created were stylized representations of the human form. In Western Art, the human form has evolved over several centuries from predominantly religious and mythological subject matter to works that come close to abstraction. Traditionally, artists work in materials like metal stone or clay; however, contemporary works incorporate a variety of materials like glass and found objects. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, August 1, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Art Nouveau Innovation: Danish Porcelain from an American Collector

The Art Nouveau period was Danish porcelain’s renaissance, marked by technical and artistic innovations. From 1885 to 1920, manufacturers Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grøndahl reached new heights of artistic achievement, winning numerous awards along the way. Their output influenced the work of companies across Europe and created a global market for Danish porcelain. The objects in this exhibition, amassed over two generations, are from a private collection that spans nearly 250 years of porcelain production in Denmark. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Sunday, August 1, 2021, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

It is one of the most famous roads in the United States and jammed with the type of diners and other small businesses that Miller experienced as a child. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts.

Unseen Universe

This exciting look into cutting edge astronomy explores the universe far beyond our human senses.

We can even interlink telescopes around the world to capture data on a global scale. Great for adults and kids ages 6 and older.

3D: Focus on the Abstract

At the turn of the 20th century as the modern art movement developed and artists began experimenting with different forms, techniques, and materials, sculptors soon realized that their work did not have to look like anything found in the real world, but rather could be an expression of their emotions or creative process.

3D: Focus on the Abstract

At the turn of the 20th century as the modern art movement developed and artists began experimenting with different forms, techniques, and materials, sculptors soon realized that their work did not have to look like anything found in the real world, but rather could be an expression of their emotions or creative process. In contrast to the exhibition on view in the Hodge Gallery, 3D: Focus on the Figure, this exhibition presents sculptures by artists who have strayed away from realistic representation and explored abstraction including Louise Nevelson, Michael Dunbar, and George Sugarman.

We can even interlink telescopes around the world to capture data on a global scale. Great for adults and kids ages 6 and older.
