“The large paintings in this series are views of the City of Flint as seen from the 11th Floor of the University of Michigan-Flint’s Northbank Center. When I first looked through the windows on the 11th floor, I saw paintings. To me, looking down onto the river and downtown and communities and landmarks like the Weatherball and the Pavilion, I saw my Flint.” – CW
