Dennis Barrie was the Director of the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center from 1983-1991. His tenure was rocked over a trial in 1990, when he and the gallery were indicted on pornography charges stemming from an exhibit of photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe (the exhibit show was titled The Perfect Moment). At trial, a Cincinnati jury acquitted Barrie and the Center. The controversy and trial were made into a TV movie titled "Dirty Pictures (Film)"

Barrie is, according to Oberlin College's Alumni Magazine (Fall 2003), a co-creator and co-founder of Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
