Falling Man

I got so excited writing about the Genesee Valley frog that I forgot all about the other sculptures that once adorned the mall that helped put downtown Flint out of business. Falling Man by Ernest Trova used to hang out in front of Hudson's, now Macy's. The work currently resides at the Flint Institute of Arts. Photo courtesy of sarrazak6881.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
