Flint Cultural Center
Conceived in a 1950’s master plan, the Flint Cultural Center represents an outstanding example of Mid-Century Modern planning and design with its strong geometric shapes, large expanses of glass and opaque panels, and use of modern, sleek materials. Many architects, over several decades, have contributed their interpretation to the Mid-Century Modern style represented here in the diverse collection of buildings which form the campus. Visitors can enjoy the architecture while exploring the museums, art galleries, theaters, planetarium, and library they house.
