Join Education staff at the Flint Institute of Arts for a free family program, Remarkable Chairs, on April 28 at 1 p.m.

From stools to armchairs and everything in between, the chair has a remarkable history.

Visit the Bray Gallery and find out what chairs can tell us about the people who own them. Then make and decorate your own miniature chair to take with you.

Family programs are designed for children ages four and up and accompanying adults.
