Upcoming Exhibitions


Curtis R. Barnes: The Unicorn Incorporated
June 14–September 14, 2014
The first museum exhibition to celebrate the work and career of Seattle artist Curtis R. Barnes. For over six 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.
Your Feast Has Ended: Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, Nicholas Galanin, and Nep Sidhu
June 14–September 21, 2014
A three-person visual cogitation exploring continuum, identity, ritual, and adornment, with work by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, Nicholas Galanin, and Nep Sidhu. The three artists work with the ancient and sacred in unison with the new and revised, bound by the belief that a people without myth and a society that fails to look upon itself honestly are destined to the same fate.
