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. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. 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
