Sculptures, installation pieces at FIA

FLINT — An exhibition of sculptures and installation works by Judy Pfaff runs now through Jan. 3 at the Flint Institute of Arts (FIA).

Pfaff combines intense planning with improvisational decision making in her exuberant, sprawling sculptures and installations that weave landscape, architecture and color into a tense yet organic whole. Her installations extend from the wall into the viewer’s space, giving these sculptures the illusion of weightlessness.

FIA hours are noon-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, noon-9 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Target Free Saturdays and 1- 5 p.m. Sundays.

Details: 810-234-1695 or visit www.flintarts.org.


Jazz photos on exhibit at FIA

FLINT — “The Fine Art of Kansas City Jazz: Photographs by Dan White” runs now through Jan. 3 at the Flint Institute of Arts.

The Pulitzer Prize winning photographer spent almost two decades photographing renowned Kansas City jazz musicians. The exhibition of 50 black and white portraits provides an intimate look at some of the artists who shaped the national and local jazz scene.

White is a Flint native and former intern at The

Flint Journal. He won the prestigious Hearst Medal for Photojournalism while an undergraduate at the University of Missouri. After college, White worked for the Yakima Herald-Republic in

Washington State and later at the Columbia Daily

Tribune and Kansas City Star. In 1981, during his tenure at the Star, White won the Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the skywalk collapse at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

After leaving the Star, White opened his own studio and traveled the world searching for new vistas. Along the way, he captured the cultures and people who inhabited those landscapes. These travels, together with a photojournalistic perspective, formed his commercial, editorial and artistic images.

FIA hours are noon-5 p.m. Monday-Wednesday and Friday, extended Thursday hours from noon-9 p.m., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Details: 810-234-1695 or visit www.flintarts.org. — N.B.
