Coos Art Museum Exhibits Ken Means’ Carousel

Sixteen years ago, artist Ken Means embarked on his dream of carving a carousel and reviving the tradition of carousel building. This monumental project comes to life at Coos Art Museum with nearly two dozen life size carousel figures. Exquisite horses, the fabled unicorn, a dragon chariot, playful giraffes, a wolf, goat, rabbit and more will delight, as will life-size drawings, wood carving tools and ‘works-in-progress.' Opening on Friday December 7, 2012 with a free public reception from 5 – 7pm and running through January 26, 2013 the exhibition is certain to touch the child in us all. Bring your family, friends and neighbors to see these fabulous art exhibitions. Admission is free for children during the entire exhibition when accompanied by an adult.

Ken Means’ Carousel is a stunning exhibition of hand carved and painted carousel figures, which are both works of art and cultural icons. The carousel represents Means’ vision and painstaking hours of crafting and carving. The artist now living in Coquille, Oregon began his career in the early 1960s when he worked as a Hollywood scenic artist and taught drawing at Pasadena City College. A man of many talents Means who began as a painter also taught bronze casting and mold-making at Otis Parson School of Fine Arts in Los Angeles, California. Means began carving rocking horses for his daughters which lead to an interest in carving carousel animals.
When Ken started the craft of carving carousel animals there were no books or teachers who taught the art of the carousel. He realized that he could help in the revival of this once-flourishing art. After moving to Oregon in 1985 he began to teach wood carving workshops. He developed a plan for a 38 figure carousel, his legacy and the origin for this splendid exhibition. 
 Coos Art Museum has been a cultural focal point of Oregon’s scenic Coast since 1966. It occupies an historic 1936 Art Deco US Federal Building in downtown Coos Bay. The Museum offers a wide range of arts activities including exhibitions, art classes and lectures. Hours are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Museum admission: $5 general, $2 veterans and seniors, and free to all Museum members. Admission for all children is free. Museum memberships are available
