What We Do

Supporting Artists

We engage with artists to give full rein to their creativity, without constraints, encouraging them to engage audiences with their unique voices.

Community Partners

We partner with other arts groups, schools, and community organizations so we can serve more people in more ways.

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.

First Friday: The Coe Center x Santa Fe Animal Shelter

We are excited for our upcoming First Friday on October 7th. The Coe Center and The Santa Fe Animal Shelter will be joining forces as we bring the community together for a fun-filled afternoon from 1:00 – 4:00 PM.

In addition, this will also be the LAST day to experience Giving Growth in the Project Space, curated and put together by Eliza Naranjo Morse and Jamison Chas Banks.

Spread the word and bring your family and friends to visit the collection as well as meet some furry friends!
