Free City is a three-day international public art festival that will take place in Flint, Michigan from May 3 to 5, 2013 in and around an abandoned, former Chevrolet manufacturing site known as Chevy-in-the-Hole.
Free City will feature music, theater, and dance performances, light sculptures, video projections, DIY machines, classes and workshops, and many other events that reclaim and transform the Chevy site with a critical mass of striking, strange, and beautiful experiences.
Flint Public Art Project and the Flint Chapter of the American Institute of Architects announce that Two Islands, a team of architects and designers based in London, have won the $25,000 grand prize in the inaugural Flat Lot competition to design and build a temporary summer pavilion on Flint's central downtown parking lot. The project opens June 14 for Flint Art Walk and will remain on the site until Fall.
The Congress for Urban Transformation brought residents together with artists, architects, and urban planners to reimagine Flint and work on small-scale projects to rebuild the city.
