Welcome to the Ralph T. Coe Foundation for the Arts

It is a simple, but wonderful idea...#GivingTuesday ...a day dedicated to giving back!

Today is the day that people from all walks of life and from all over the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Please join the festivities by making an online gift in support of the Ralph T. Coe Foundation for the Arts and its programs. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference!

I, and the Ralph T. Coe Foundation Board sincerely thank you,

Rachel

This exhibition brings together exquisite carvings and prints from the collection of Santa Fe residents Richard and Joan Chodosh. Through the Coe Foundation's Curatorial Conversation Program visitors will have an intimate look into one collector's experiences of working with some of the leading Northwest Coast artists of today. This is an incredible opportunity for the public to engage in conversation with both Chodosh and Bernstein as they discuss the multi-sided aspects of collecting and the curatorial process.



CHEYENNE LEDGER BOOK ONLINE!
Now, online at Plains Ledger Art (PILA), you can see this amazing, but fragile Ralph T. Coe Foundation collection ledger drawing book. Created in the 1880's, the ledger book features striking images of courting scenes, soldiers, and Cheyenne warriors - many who are identified by name glyphs! This is certainly a book of artistic and historical significance.

Our sincerest gratitude goes out to the Plains Indian Art Project for making this possible -- Thank you!
