Summary:
The papers of New York art consultant, entrepreneur, publisher, and painter, Barbara Kulicke measure 7.4 linear feet and date from 1963 to 2006. The papers document Kulicke's career through personal business records, alphabetical files, and project files.
Scope and Contents:
The papers of New York art consultant, entrepreneur, publisher, and painter, Barbara Kulicke measure 7.4 linear feet and date from 1963 to 2006. The papers document Kulicke's career through personal business records, alphabetical files, and project files.

Personal business records include Barbara Kulicke's resumes, art exhibition announcements, letterhead designs, invoices and receipts, a disbound album on project commissions, and miscellaneous legal records.

Alphabetical files include a mixture of artist files and subject files. The artist files include correspondence, photographs, resumes, exhibition catalogs, announcements, clippings, and other material. The subject files mostly contain printed material about topics of interest to Kulicke and a few business records.

Project files are mostly about public art commissions that Kulicke worked on as an art consultant, though some of the material appears to be related to her businesses, Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Co. and Multiples. Files include project proposals, correspondence, photographs, and printed material.

This collection is arranged as 3 series.

Biographical / Historical:
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.

Scope and Contents:
General correspondence files contain all communications that do not pertain to a specific project. Because Friedman's personal life and business were so interconnected, many of his business associates also shared personal correspondence with the designer.,Materials in this collection document Friedman's work from 1967, as a student, until his death in 1995.

Files that document his affiliations with Yale University and the State University of New York at Purchase include administrative memos, proposals, lecture outlines, syllabi, bibliographies, examples of students' work, and design projects Friedman did for each school. A copy of the goals and objectives of the Division of Visual Arts within the School of the Arts at SUNY Purchase written by Friedman is included.

Project files include business correspondence, invoices, sketches, contracts, clippings, photographs, and slides. In the case of his graphic projects, some samples of stationery and brochures are included. Extensive documentation exists for Friedman's projects for Citibank, WilliWear, National Public Radio, and Bonwit Teller. Some correspondence is in German. Friedman's lecture notes, proposals for articles and books, and drafts of many articles are included. Clippings of articles on the designer and his work are arranged chronologically.
