The Frye Art Museum is presenting a new exhibition of paintings from its Founding Collection curated by Scott Lawrimore, the Frye’s new Deputy Director, Exhibitions and Collections, in collaboration with members of the Museum’s staff.

In 1907, James Joyce’s first published work, Chamber Music, appeared. Taking inspiration from the thirty-six poems in that volume, Frye Art Museum staff selected paintings for 36 Chambers from the Founding Collection.

An exhibition about love, family, and firsts, 36 Chambers honors the legacy of Charles and Emma Frye and their example of bringing together diverse visions of the role of art and culture in everyday life. In the spirit of the “citizen curator” celebrated at the Frye Art Museum in recent exhibitions such as Beloved (2012) and The Seattle Project (2010), the exhibition highlights the sense of community and collaboration “behind-the-scenes” at the Frye and the rich perspectives that the Museum team—many of whom are artists themselves—offers.
