Flint Artifacts: Sloan Museum Camp-In Patch


  1. OK, I'm intrigued by this one. Does anyone remember this or participate in it? When was it? Did you really have to sleep in a sardine can like the patch shows? I can't believe they let you have a slumber party there when you can't even touch any of the exhibits.

  2. Never did this one, but did have a couple with my boys at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Appropriately, they were called "Sleep with the fishes." Always fun!


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
