Enrich your life as a member of the Flint Institute of Arts. For one year, enjoy special privileges to exhibitions, films, events, lectures, art classes, and much more. Your support will continue to sustain one of Michigan's most valuable cultural assets. 

A Flint Institute of Arts membership makes a thoughtful and welcome birthday, holiday, anniversary, or graduation gift. Besides helping support your Museum, a gift membership will complement the recipient and bring them a year of great art experiences. 

For only $20 in addition to your FIA membership, you can become a Founders Society member or a Friends of Modern Art (FOMA) member. To join or renew your membership online, you can select your membership level and then be given the option to also select either FOMA or Founders Society or both for $30 and make one payment.

Digital Member Cards Are Here!

Everything around us has gone digital and so has your FIA member card.

Going digital is an option, and you may continue to also receive a paper card, however having your member card right on your phone is very convenient!

To download and activate your digital member card, you will need an email address and either an iPhone or an Android phone with a “Wallet” app installed. After filling out the membership form and selecting either “Digital Card,” “Physical Card,” or “Both,” approximately two weeks later, you will receive either an email from the FIA with instructions on how to download your digital card (if selected) or your physical card will be mailed to you.

If you are a new member or it is time to renew your membership, click here for an online membership form. If you are already a member and would like a digital card, please email the Membership Coordinator at vbailie@flintarts.org with your name, address, and email address and indicate “Digital Card.”

We appreciate all you do to keep us moving forward.

Kuba Felt Banner
