Biography Note:
Barbara Kulicke (circa 1929-2015) was a New York-based art consultant, entrepreneur, publisher, and painter. In 1963, Kulicke founded the Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Co., which made banners based on artists' designs. In 1965, she started the company Multiples, which incorporated Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Co., with Marion Goodman, who later opened the Marion Goodman Gallery in New York. Barbara Kulicke also ran her own art consultant company from 1980-1990. Her art consultant business focused on public art commissions such as installations, sculptures, mosaics, and murals. Some of these projects relied on funding from New York City's Percent for Art law that designated one percent of the budget to art commissions for city facilities, such as schools. Kulicke is also an artist and has had several exhibitions of her work, primarily landscape paintings. She began focusing on her art full-time from 1990 until her death in 2015.
