Dear Friends,
Some communities know little about their history and have few artifacts to remember years gone by—but we do, thanks to Sloan Museum. Other communities do not have regular access to dance, music, comedy, and drama—but we do, thanks to The Whiting. And no community in Michigan has immediate access to the state��s largest planetarium—except us, thanks to Longway Planetarium. These valued institutions remain vital and continue to prosper through the hard work and support of donors, patrons, volunteers, and staff members who help to make them unique places that enrich our lives and strengthen our community. This is done by working hand in hand. Together, we are able to preserve our local history through Sloan Museum and its Buick Automotive Gallery and Research Center; to stage special exhibits such as CSI: Crime Scene Insects and 100 Years of Chevrolet; to bring world-renowned theatrical performances such as Swan Lake and Grease to The Whiting; to thrill students with the wonders of the universe through astronomy shows at Longway Planetarium; and to expand our outreach programs to area schools and senior centers. At the FCCC, we work tirelessly every day, inspired by our mission to foster cultural activity and community vitality through history, science and the arts. Come visit us soon at Longway Planetarium, Sloan Museum, and The Whiting and see all that has been accomplished together...by working hand in hand. All my best, Dr. D.J. Trela, Chair Flint Cultural Center Corporation

Flint Cultural Center Corporation Annual Report 2010–2011
In 2010–2011, Sloan Museum
had a total of 56,150 visitors, including 18,332 K–12 students. Guests enjoyed a vast array of offerings, including vintage car shows, special science exhibits, and programming in history, science, and technology. Two nationally touring exhibits, Grossology: The Impolite Science of the Human Body and CSI: Crime Scene Insects, were presented in partnership with Mott Community College. Mott faculty worked with museum staff to develop complementary programs and educational activities for the public and for school groups. Other exhibits included Box City, which showcased model cities created by elementary school students as they learned about urban development, and 100 Years of Chevrolet, a series of popular exhibits celebrating Chevy��s 100th birthday. Highlights also included hosting the 39th Annual Sloan Museum Auto Fair attended by more than 9,000 participants and spectators; opening Wisner��s Whizbang Emporium, an in-house children��s area for families to play and learn together; staging the exhibit African American Inventors: Past and Present created and curated by Pierce Elementary School students; continuing vintage auto restoration work by college and high school interns at Buick Automotive Gallery and Research Center; and completing important research and acquisitions work with the help of dedicated volunteers in Sloan��s Perry Archives.

��Life after work��it��s fulfilling!�� That��s how Bob Florine describes his twenty years of volunteer service at the Perry Archives in Sloan Museum��s Buick Automotive Gallery and Research Center. A mechanical engineer, Bob retired in 1991 after thirty-five years with General Motors and began looking for something interesting to do that would benefit the community. His wife Shirley, a Sloan volunteer, recruited Bob to help document unidentified items in the museum��s collections knowing that Bob��s curiosity and attention to detail would be wonderful assets. Many of the 150,000 artifacts in Sloan��s collections were donated by residents, businesses, and organizations and have not been fully researched. Bob found his calling as an investigator and began exploring, organizing, and cataloging these priceless pieces. He recently completed a three-year project identifying more than 1,000 photographs taken between 1850 and 1870 of local buildings and businesses. With jeweler��s loop in hand, Bob painstakingly scrutinized every picture, analyzing landmarks, landscape features, railroad routes, rivers, streets, clothing fashions, vehicles, and license plates for hidden clues. He also used city directories and other references.

s Michigan��s largest planetarium, Longway Planetarium serves as a regional learning center attracting 51,781 patrons last year. Teachers from nineteen Michigan counties brought 40,730 pupils to astronomy shows such as Dark Matters and Skeeter Scarecrow��s Starry Sky. Students also attended a variety of education classes offering hands-on science activities. Their all-time favorite class, Ice Cream, allowed them to study, measure, and mix ingredients to create and eat liquid nitrogen-infused ice cream. Visitors participated in workshops, community science outreach programs, and viewed popular laser and star shows such as Planet Chase and What Happened to Pluto. Summer Science Camps, Family Science Days, and Boy Scout and Girl Scout camp-ins continued to thrive. Longway��s community partnerships with UM-Flint strengthened. A new pilot program was launched with university guest lecturer Dr. Rajib Ganguly on How Many Ways Can a Black Hole Kill You. Continued successes included readings at Poetry Under the Stars by UM-Flint Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, and use of the planetarium for astronomy lab classes by the Science Department. The planetarium has become an increasingly popular place for family gatherings and meetings, where nearly 2,500 guests attended private functions there last year. The dome also served as a romantic venue for weddings, where vows were shared under a year-round starry sky.

Three days of exciting hands- on science await girls in grades 3–6 this summer at Longway Planetarium��s Camp Alpha Omega. Each year, the camp focuses on a special topic such as exploring the earth through rocks, fossils and coral formations, or studying physics through creative movement and body recall. The Alpha Omega Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society created the camp in 2009 to expose more girls to science and math careers. This professional organization of local women educators provides the teachers and classroom materials for activities that include experiments, lab work, lectures, and field trips. To enhance writing skills, each girl is given a notebook to record thoughts and ideas about her experiences. The camp charges a modest fee, with scholarships being available. ��The purpose of camp is to encourage girls to go into the fields of science and mathematics,�� says Delta Kappa Gamma Society International State President Olive Horning. ��Alpha Omega members enjoy teaching the girls and gain a lot of satisfaction from the experience.�� Alpha Omega members hold the camp as an annual community service project, raising money throughout the year through raffles, restaurant partnerships, and member donations. They spend six months and nearly fifty hours of advance preparation time planning the year��s educational programming.

s a valuable performing arts center, The Whiting seeks to create memorable life experiences by bringing performing artists and audiences together in an elegant and inviting environment. The Whiting welcomed more than 78,000 people of all ages who enjoyed world-class music, drama, dance, and comedy. Offerings ranged from Michigan-native Jeff Daniels, to the critically acclaimed The Color Purple, the excitement of animal expert ��Jungle Jack�� Hanna, and the boisterous exuberance of Spamalot. Serving more than 6,200 students and adults, The Whiting continued to strengthen its education and outreach efforts. Wednesdays at The Whiting and Introduction to Technical Theater enabled high school students to explore theater occupations. Entertainment Express took local artists to area senior citizen centers for performances and workshops, reaching many underserved adults who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to experience performances at The Whiting. Garry Krinsky��s Toying with Science enthralled 2,260 elementary school students with the principles of physics through interactive performances featuring acrobatics, music, and mime. Mid-Michigan��s premier performance venue since 1967, The Whiting will continue to meet the cultural and educational needs in our community for generations to come.
Our 2009–2010 Annual Report profiled Douglas Bloodgood, a wonderful supporter who initiated and funded an effort to produce 40 ��Whiting Red�� booster cushions for children. The demand was so great that Douglas secured an additional 20 cushions for our young patrons.

Dr. Ernestine Smith was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, famously known for its thermal water, race tracks, and abundant cultural opportunities. ��We were fortunate to have theater, music, and literature as part of our lives and were taught that we had an obligation to share these worthwhile experiences with others,�� she recalls. Realizing that college was essential to advance beyond working in Hot Springs�� tourist industry, Ernestine earned a Bachelor��s in Zoology, a certificate in Physical Therapy, a Master��s in Public Health, and a Doctorate in Administration and Supervision. This career path eventually led her to Hurley Hospital. In Flint, Ernestine met her husband Lavoy, and raised a daughter Shelia. Ernestine expresses her love of performing arts by supporting The Whiting as a Platinum Ticket Subscriber. This provides the perfect opportunity for Ernestine to reach out to her spheres of influence and invite them to attend a Whiting performance, continuing her family��s legacy of sharing rich cultural experiences with others. ��If we value this treasure of The Whiting—and I do—we have to make a commitment to ensure its success.�� Ernestine devotes countless hours and thoughtful leadership on the Flint Cultural Center Corporation Board of Directors and as chairperson of the Fund Development Committee. She is also a member of the Ambassador Society which supports the excellent programming offered by our member organizations.

The Flint Cultural Center Corporation remains a vital and stable investment in our community. Another strong year resulted in a balanced budget despite continued economic uncertainty in state and local economies. Building upon the previous year��s success in building a leaner, more efficient organization, positive results were achieved with income exceeding expenses by $363,937. Containment of costs and securing additional funding sources largely contributed to this surplus. This balanced budget was achieved while maintaining the same level of programmatic excellence for which Sloan*Longway and The Whiting are known.

Thanks to the generosity of nearly 1,400 contributors, the Flint Cultural Center Corporation development team and volunteers raised more than $2,157,636 for Sloan Museum, Longway Planetarium, and The Whiting. Individuals, businesses, trusts, and foundations invested in education, theater arts, science, and history. We thank them— and you—for making such rich experiences possible for 168,940 patrons and visitors. Many donors gave to the Annual Fund, providing unrestricted dollars for operating and maintaining a first-class museum, automotive gallery, planetarium, and theater. Others contributed to specific programs. Growing Up Artfully, the FCCC��s signature fundraising event, supported 20,000 underserved youths and families with outreach opportunities provided by Sloan*Longway and The Whiting. Foundations and trusts provided general operating funds, which, along with corporate sponsorships, helped to bring some of the year��s most memorable performances, exhibits, and programs.   Sloan*Longway��s Portable Dome Theater Special Gifts Campaign raised all the funds to purchase an inflatable dome and state- of-the-art digital sound system. Accommodating up to 30 students at a time, the dome can take a wide variety of programs in astronomy, history, and other subjects, directly to area schools.  The Whiting launched a Safety and Beautification Initiative to resurface the parking lot, install auditorium handrails, and replace aging carpeting. Many donors contributed to this effort and are recognized in the annual report. The campaign��s final phase will occur in the next fiscal year.
Working hand in hand, the FCCC and its many donors accomplished much in 2010–2011.

Long and successful newspaper careers have given Tom and Pat Reynolds a strong sense of community and a love for the Flint area and its cultural institutions. They want to ensure that future generations will enjoy the offerings of Longway Planetarium. Sloan Museum, and The Whiting. The Reynolds moved to Genesee County in 1985 following Tom��s distinguished career with several Detroit-area publications. They received a warm welcome and decided to make the Flint area their permanent home. ��It was a good decision,�� said Pat. ��Over the years, this community has been very good to us, and we want to be good to our community.�� They have mentored future community leaders and contributed to many charitable and professional organizations. Tom and Pat recently joined the James H. Whiting Legacy Society to take advantage of the power of estate planning to support the work of the FCCC and member institutions. Through planned gifts, they are creating a lasting legacy that will extend their generosity beyond their lifetimes. ��We want the wonderful things in our community to continue long after we leave,�� said Tom. ��Some people have an ability to give but don��t.  We hope to influence others to contribute. Every gift, large or small, makes a difference.�� 
Touching future lives.

Made-in-Flint Planetarium Show Opens to Rave Reviews
Skeeter Scarecrow��s Starry Sky is a delightful original show that debuted at Longway Planetarium. Cartoon character Skeeter Scarecrow helps children understand basic astronomy. Longway Astronomy Specialist Richard Walker wrote the show for children age six and up. Mott College students created the artwork, Flint Youth Theatre��s Samuel L. Richardson provided the voice of Skeeter, and Sylvia Pittman��s four-year-old students from the Flint Institute of Music sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star for the soundtrack.
Genesee Regional Women��s Hall of Fame at Sloan Museum
Sloan Museum is home to the Genesee Regional Women��s Hall of Fame. Created by Zonta Club of Flint, the exhibit honors women who have played a significant role in Genesee County. Area women are honored whose contributions are of an enduring nature, have significantly advanced the status of women in our society, and have served as positive role models for area youth and women.
Literature to Life Alliance
In partnership with New York��s The American Place Theatre, The Whiting presents Literature to Life, a performance- based literacy program of professionally staged adaptations of significant American literary works. Since 2008, solo actors have presented two one-hour classics to our community each year. A full complement of activities occurs which allows students and theater-goers to experience arts, culture, and literature by bringing to life the world of books through a performance.
Collaboration is Key to Success When Working Hand in Hand

Rick Suhr��s solution to his poor-quality well water provided the inspiration for a unique way to support the Flint Cultural Center Corporation. Retired and living on a fixed income, Rick grew weary of multiple weekly trips to the grocery store to purchase bottled drinking water. He decided to start saving all of the empty gallon jugs to refill at the store��s water dispensing machine. This meant fewer shopping trips, less plastic going into the landfill, and an unexpected savings of 59 cents per gallon. A meticulous record keeper, Rick calculated that he visited the store 69 times during the year, filling 361 jugs and saving a total of $212.99. He wrote a check for exactly that amount to the FCCC Annual Fund that supports Longway Planetarium, Sloan Museum, and The Whiting, places he visited as a child and continues to frequent as an adult. ��I firmly believe that almost anyone can contribute to a cause or charity in some small way if they really believe in it,�� said Rick, who plans to continue filling water jugs and to pass along those savings to the FCCC.

Growing Up Artfully is the Flint Cultural Center Corporation��s annual fundraiser held the first Thursday in June. Proceeds from Growing Up Artfully enable Longway Planetarium, Sloan Museum, and The Whiting to offer subsidized tickets for performances and outreach activities to underserved families and youth in Genesee County. Since its inception in 2004, Growing Up Artfully has raised more than $200,000. Children and adults from many schools and organizations such as Flint Community Schools, Beecher Community Schools, Genesee Valley Regional Center, Shelter of Flint, and Michigan Department of Human Services have benefitted from these funds. This past year, 20,000 youth and adults were served through Growing Up Artfully contributions. During these difficult economic times, those benefitting from this important program are extremely appreciative of the cultural opportunities provided to them. Growing Up Artfully is successful due to the involvement of so many dedicated individuals. These include event benefactor Chef Besh of Cameo Event Planners; hosts who graciously open their lovely homes and gardens for the fundraiser; a committee comprised of devoted community volunteers; and our generous sponsors.
