Our knowledgeable Visitor Services team is eager to greet you when you enter the Lobby of the Flint Institute of Arts.

Gum, food and drinks are not permited in the galleries. Visitors are asked not to touch any of the artwork in the FIA. Works of art are very fragile, even those made of stone and metal. Salts and oil residues from visitors' hands destroy the surfaces of works of art over time. It is our responsibility to preserve and protect the works of art in our public trust for future generations.
Photography is permitted only in the permanent collection galleries. No flash attachments or video cameras allowed. Camera permits are required and available at the Informaiton Desk. No photographs taken in the Institute may be reproduced, distributed, or sold without permission from the Flint Institute of Arts.
