Culture Shock invited families from the Flint Housing Commission to attend the Flint Institute of Arts on July 12, 2014. Sixty residents from River Park, Howard Estates, Atherton East and Aldridge indulged their curiosity and creativity with guided tours activities. Many attendees had never visited the FIA or had not visited in decades. FIA docents lead small groups through the galleries pointing out interesting facts and encouraging critical thinking when it comes to appreciating visual art. Art teachers lead craft making activities where everyone was given an opportunity to complete several projects to take home with them as a memento of their visit. At the end of the day, each person received an art kit and information about the FIA programs so they could continue to explore the artistic process. The event strengthened family ties by engaging parents and children in activities together. Mass Transit Authority provided bus transportation for the guests and lunch was provided by GM Flint Manufacturing.
