Admission to the FIA's Artful Halloween are free to members of the Contemporaries, $75 in advance, and $100 the night of the event. You must be 21 or older to attend this spooktacular event.

How Do They Do That?
You'll see a lot of great glass art pieces at the FIA (depending on the exhibits) and it always begs the question, "How did they do that?"
If you've never had an opportunity to see glass-blowing in person, we urge you to catch a show at the Flint Institute of Arts soon. Glass-blowing demonstrations are currently being presented each Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm and on Sundays from 1 to 4 pm. Admission is free for all Genesee County residents.
From the FIA's website:
"When people witness the process of something being made live and then see a finished product of a similar artistic expression in the galleries, they find the answer to the frequently asked question: 'How did they do that?'”
It's true. We had an opportunity to watch artist John Miller creating items for his exhibit 'Blue Plate Special' which enjoyed a nice long run at the FIA.
