Featured Acquisition

Gift to the FIA: Works on Paper

In its 89-year history, the FIA has acquired nearly 8,000 works of art in its permanent collection, with 3,000 of them being works on paper. Our dedication and sincerity to collecting, displaying, and caring for prints, drawings, watercolors, and photographs in the collection can be seen in the 2,100-square foot. area in the museum devoted solely to works on paper. Within the space, the Graphics Gallery highlights an average of 120 to 180 works each year through five to six exhibitions. Visual storage within the Piper Print Library (accessible to visitors by appointment) provides optimum environmental conditions for works not on view. Additionally, the FIA’s semi-annual Print Fair cultivates new and existing print connoisseurs. The Flint Print Club, now in its 10th year, annually 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, which provides each member with the commissioned print and related programs. Artists that have been featured include April Gornik, Richard Bosman, Janet Fish, and Gladys Nilsson.

The FIA’s collection includes works from the 15th century to the present, with excellent works by many well-known artists, among them the most recent acquisitions of Stanley William Hayter, Anders Zorn, Wangechi Mutu, Shepard Fairey, Robert Longo, and Richard Estes. With only a modest acquisition fund, the FIA relies primarily on gifts to the collection. An example is the 2016 gift from Flint native and retired schoolteacher Annette Marcinkoski, who donated 33 works on paper, including etchings, lithographs, and drawings by such notable artists as Thomas Hart Benton, Philip Evergood, John Taylor Arms, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Martin Lewis, and Giovanni Battista Piranesi. Through this generous gift, the FIA also received its first work by 19th-century French artist Edouard Manet (see page 9). Many of the gifts from Ms. Marcinkoski were purchased at one of the Art of Collecting exhibitions or FIA Print Fairs held within the last two decades, with the intention of one day giving them to the FIA.
