Buckham Gallery

Buckham Fine Arts Project continues to evolve and grow its mission of enriching the cultural life of Flint and surrounding communities by presenting a broad range of innovative contemporary art exhibitions and providing mission-driven arts programming. In 2022, ten 4 to 5 week visual art exhibitions will feature work by local, regional, and national artists who highlight artistic expressions and issues not already represented by galleries in our region. Programming that supplements Buckham's exhibitions include community events such as Art Walk and Cider & Slides, Artist talks, and Open Mic events for area artist/performers. Our outreach efforts include our On Screen project to benefit area nonprofits, Writer Residency for local BIPOC literary artists, Internships to provide professional development opportunities for area art majors, and developing institutional partnerships that help establish Flint as a cultural campus.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To continue to produce monthly exhibitions, work with youth in detention, and make a positive cultural impact on Flint and Genesee County.

Continue to maintain artist members and hold call for entries, continue to produce research from the GVRC program, and to offer artists, of all kinds, a place to grow.

Membership dues, appeals, and grants.

We continue to accomplish our goals, sometimes at a slower rate than we hope, but we always accomplish our goals.

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Through analyzing data of featured artists and gallery guests, BFAP noted that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color were underrepresented. New programming and outreach are specifically intended to engage with more diverse communities. BFAP’s next national juried exhibition was developed with an African American juror, and focuses on works created by BIPOC artists. This exhibition will offer future exhibition opportunities for BIPOC artists, in addition to catalogue and the traditional cash prizes. BFAP also launched Writer in Residence, providing an opportunity for a local BIPOC writer to engage with their interest in visual art and gain exposure for their literary arts, and engage Flint’s BIPOC community in a meaningful way. Ultimately, compositions will be compiled in a publication.
