Silo Swing art project to be unveiled in Flint

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Swing by Flint’s Spring Grove for the chance to, well, swing.

The open space not far from downtown is home to a new art installation called Silo Swing.

It’s to be unveiled by the Flint Public Art Project at an event on Thursday.

Created by New York-based artist Chris Jordan, Silo Swing is, as its name implies, a swing situated between a pair of silos.

Visitors are invited to ride the ground-level swing, which is connected to reflective, wind-catching materials above that create a light display on the silos.

Thursday’s event kicks off Spring Grove Nights, a public art series that will take place on the first Thursday of the month from July to September.
