COE COLLECTION

The Coe Collection

The Coe is unique in that our collection of over 2,300 objects is from all over the world. By visiting, you have the opportunity to travel the world through art and conversation. You never know what will catch your eye (and your heart) as you experience our open collections. Our staff and volunteers are always happy to share stories and talk about their favorite objects.

Although we are currently closed due to COVID-19, we look forward to when we can again be open to the public each First Friday of the month, Summer Saturdays in July and August, as well as being able to offer private free tours.

“It’s never been about the materials, or even techniques. It’s the voice. It’s the voice that remains authentic and true and Native and specific to whomever you are and who your people are and the stories you have to tell.”
