Ever walk into a museum and think, “Why’d they choose THAT?,” or, “Why did they take down my favorite cat portrait? Nobody leaves until the cat comes back.”
The Frye Art Museum staff feels your pain/strong feelings about art/need to free your inner art historian. So the Frye has launched “You Be the Curator.” Here’s how it works: Images of all 232 of the Seattle museum’s paintings are now on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr. Visit these sites and “heart” the ones you like. The most-liked paintings will be shown at the Frye in the fall. Some lucky curators from the crowd will also see their comments displayed, too.
If you’re not on social media, you may vote on The Frye’s website. You may also vote in person at The Frye.
