The Flint Institute of Arts believes an effective way to enhance its reputation as an important cultural institution is to lend works of art from its permanent collection to other institutions. Lending art from the permanent collection promotes collegial relationships betweens museums, and provides national and international audiences exposure to works of art from the FIA's outstanding collection. In addition, the FIA also borrows works from other museums, galleries, and collectors to supplement its permanent collection and exhibitions.
