Each year, the Flint Print Club commissions an artist to produce a print to augment both the FIA's collection and the pursuit of personal collecting. The Club is limited to 100 members in good standing at the Family level or above. Flint Print Club dues are $250.00 annually, which provides each participating member with a selected print and related programs.
The Flint Institute of Arts worked with Hunt Slonem to produce the image for 2013. Slonem's work is recognizable by his use of animals—particularly birds and rabbits. Much like his other series, Slonem repeats his subjects in a manner that is vibrant, energetic, and colorful—qualities that make his work particularly engaging. Though this repetitive approach is similar to that of famed Pop artist Andy Warhol, unlike Warhol, Slonem's very gestural style of painting gives his subjects a sense of energy similar to that seen in this year's Print Club print. You can learn more about the artist and his work by visiting his website at huntslonem.com
