The Unicorn Incorporated

Curtis R. Barnes

The Unicorn Incorporated celebrates 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. The publication includes a poem by renowned musician Ishmael Butler, an extended interview with the artist, and an essay by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker on the legendary Omowale mural.
