Learn, Participate, Share
Above all else, we at the Coe Center, value the health and well-being of our staff, visitors, and community and so with the potential risk and ever-changing nature of COVID-19, the Coe Center remains cautious. We are accepting pre-scheduled visits of 1-5 people. And on October 1, 2021, our First Fridays Program returns where we are open to visitors on the first Fridays of each month, 1-4 pm.
Space is limited and so preregistration is recommended. Masks and proof of vaccination are required.
Please peruse through our website, engage with the collection; sign up for our Eletter, read The Virtual Coe, experience the amazing artists of our time by watching Collections Spotlight, and more!
Thank you again for your ongoing support.
Programs for All Ages
We use our collection as the catalyst for hands-on educational experiences and enrichment.
Making a Donation
You can make a difference with a tax-deductible donation. And, don’t forget us in your wills and trusts.
Did you see the Santa Fe New Mexican this Thursday, October 14?
We were thrilled to see Nanibah (Nani) Chacon’s mural on the Coe Center’s project space on the front page! Nani (Diné and Xicana) has been this vibrant mural for the past months, filling our formerly blank wall with a powerful image of generational continuity and creation.
In case you missed it—check out the latest COLLECTIONS SPOTLIGHT with Golga Oscar.
In partnership with First American Art Magazine, is an interactive, free monthly online discussion that brings together diverse scholars and Native artists who select artworks from the Coe’s collection to interpret and discuss. The virtual Zoom format brings together attendees from diverse regions, and the artist can take audience questions at the end. These events are free and open to the general public.
Stay tuned for the next Collections Spotlight in November

What We Do
We work at the grassroots, serving as a catalyst for change that will evolve and expand through the years.
We partner with other arts groups, schools, and community organizations so we can serve more people in more ways.
We engage with artists to give full rein to their creativity, without constraints, encouraging them to engage audiences with their unique voices.
Educating Young People
We work with young people to open their eyes to their own inherent abilities and their powerful heritages. And our Hands-On Student Curators and fellows learn skills they can use throughout their lives in any endeavor.
You can volunteer, make a donation, or sponsor a community experience. And, we welcome your ideas!
“When you hold a thing you’re there in the moment, of how it was used and how it was made.”
“I revisit and bear constantly in mind the objects of my collection to gain new insights. They are not trophies but instruments of passion, with the power to unexpectedly reveal mysteries.”
