FLINT, Michigan—You asked for it, so here it is.
Now you can see the results of the Flint Public Art Project’s work to bring local and world-renowned artists together to create 100 murals in Flint without ever leaving your house.
Working in collaboration with the Flint Public Art Project, Flintside developed a video with images from all the sites. Credit goes to Flint Public Art Project for the photos — and most importantly for making this project happen. We teamed up so we could give you this quick-and-easy way to see them all.
The 3-minute tour of Flint’s murals will take you from downtown where Loft owner Rodney Ott independently had a tribute to Anthony Bourdain painted on the bar’s Saginaw Street facade to Charles Boike’s powerful image of women’s boxing champ Claressa Shields on Flint’s southside.
We hope you like the video … but even more so, we hope you go see these massive art installations for yourself. Nothing beats seeing a four-story painting in real life.
Below we’ve also provided a map where each of the murals is located. (We’re working on adding images to that map, so stay tuned.)
Or you could do what my family does — we just go and explore the city, seeing who can spot another mural first. The kids especially enjoy it, and you never have to travel far before seeing yet another masterpiece.
