The Unicorn Incorporated: Curtis R. Barnes

June 14-September 21

The Frye Art Museum is pleased to announce 'The Unicorn Incorporated,' the first museum exhibition to celebrate the work and career of Seattle artist Curtis R. Barnes. For over five decades, Barnes has worked as an artist, illustrator, muralist, and community advocate. In his sculpture, painting, and drawing, he employs imagery derived from his vast experience, mystical erudition, and heritage. Throughout the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, he produced searing social commentary in pen and ink, drawings that are as prescient and powerful today as they were then.

As a child in the '50s, Barnes attended his first art classes at the Frye Art Museum. He is a living reminder of the Museum's mission - since its inception - to provide free access to art and education for children. Barnes continued his education at the Cornish College of the Arts and the Seattle Central Community College Wood Technology Program.

In 1972, Barnes and fellow artist Royal Alley-Barnes designed and realized the beloved 'Omowale' mural at Medgar Evers Pool in Seattle's Central District. Despite passionate appeals and numerous letters of petition from concerned citizens, the mural was destroyed in 1995.

'The Unicorn Incorporated' presents a selection from the extensive body of work of this prolific artist and pays homage to the legacy of the 'Omowale' mural.



'The Unicorn Incorporated: Curtis R. Barnes' is organized by the Frye Art Museum and curated by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker. The exhibition is funded by the Frye Foundation with the generous support of David and Kristi Buck and Frye Art Museum members and donors. It is sponsored by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. Seasonal support is provided by 4Culture and ArtsFund. Media sponsorship is provided by City Arts.

The Frye Art Museum is located at 704 Terry Ave. The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday until 7 p.m. The museum is closed Monday. Admission is always FREE.
