Seattle museum crowdsources upcoming exhibition

Frye Museum promo

In the spirit of the “citizen curator” celebrated at the Frye in recent exhibitions includingThe Seattle Project (2010), Beloved (2012), Mw [Moment Magnitude] (2012), and 36 Chambers (2013), we’re disrupting museum practice and turning the Frye over to you.

There are 232 paintings in the Frye’s Founding Collection. Their crowdsourced curation is taking place now on FacebookInstagramPintrest and Tumblr as well as at the Frye website.

The voting to determine what will be on display September 27, 2014 through January 4, 2015 in the Museum’s #SocialMedium exhibit ends at 11:59 p.m. Friday August 22.

The Charles and Emma Frye Free Public Art Museum is a 501(c)(3) private  foundation organized as a charitable non-profit corporation in Washington State. It opened in 1952 and is the legacy of Charles and Emma Frye. See their Founding Collection in alphabetical order by artist.
