Flint Institute of Arts Away: Facebook Live on July 29 at 7pm. Have you been missing museums during the last months? We’ll be bringing the museum exhibit to you. Chene Koppitz of the Flint Institute of Arts will share images, information, and stories about the celebrated paperweight collection and exhibit. The 2020 exhibit Postscript features 68 weights from a local private collector and highlights major works by classical paperweight manufacturers as well as contemporary artists. This exhibition includes two extremely rare weights made by French manufacturer Pantin. Founded in 1850, Pantin produced paperweights until 1890. Although Pantin did not create as many weights as manufacturers such as Baccarat and Clichy, those it did were—and remain—some of the most desirable weights for collectors.
