Frances Willson Thompson’s interest in the FIA followed the footsteps of her father, George Willson. Her steadfast financial support and devotion to the growth of the Institute was an inspiration to generations of Flint’s citizens.

This gallery features art made within the continent of Asia, including China, Japan, India, Thailand, and Cambodia. Objects shown include sandstone, wood, and cast iron statues of the Buddha, Qing Dynasty porcelain, and ceremonial vessels.
