We NEED your VOTE!!!
Carriage Town Historic Neighborhood Association is collaborating with Flint Public Art Project to renovate an abandoned home in the city’s oldest neighborhood as a cooperative art and community space – using an imaginative rebuilding process to revitalize some of the city’s 20,000 distressed buildings.
Led by Andrew Perkins, a recent SUNY–Buffalo M.Arch. graduate who rescued a house in upstate NY using recycled materials, Carriage Town and FPAP are working with prominent artists to reuse the magnificent Spencer’s Mortuary, once owned by a local civil rights leader.
Taking cues from its past use as a meeting space, Carriage Town and FPAP are planning a series of workshops on how to readapt the building. Located steps from a Native American burial ground, blocks from birthplace of the American auto industry, and halfway between two universities, Spencer’s Art House will be a beacon of the emerging city.
Funds from Chase Community Giving will offset the cost of repairing the roof and foundation, and installing insulation and renewable building systems. Spencer’s Art House will demonstrate that abandoned homes can be reborn as neighborhood resources – both in Flint and in cities nationwide.
