Restoration Efforts in Flint Transform Old Funeral Home Into Beautiful Art House

Just because a restoration project for local artists is being built using an over century old funeral home doesn’t mean that art is dead in Flint, Michigan.

Spencer’s Art House is a huge revitalization project that serves to transform a 120-year-old mortuary located in Flint’s historic Carriage Town area into an amazing space for Flint’s artistic community.

The historic home has stood vacant for about 15 years, and has been the location of a series of concerts, puppet shows, community meetings and other various events since volunteers began making an effort to bring the home back to life.

Project leader, Andrew Perkins, recently announced that a Kickstarter campaign launched in September to help raise $12,000 for the projects restoration efforts was met on October 19, 2013.  Money will be used for various repairs to the roof, windows and some landscaping.

“We love you all! We reached our goal!! Thanks to everyone that worked on the campaign, donated money, shared a link, told a friend or had the project in their thoughts! We made it!” read a status update on the project’s Facebook page.
