The Coe explores and connects through experiencing the world’s Indigenous Arts. The Coe Center creates awareness, education, and appreciation of Indigenous Arts. We connect people and art through inclusive hands-on experiential learning and partnering. In this, we responsibly steward a diverse and eclectic collection of world Indigenous Art that supports community narratives.
His passion for art and culture was global, spanning from ancient to contemporary.
The Coe Center is the legacy of Ralph T. Coe, known as Ted to his family and friends. Ted Coe was an exceptional curator and collector, as well as museum director. His passion for art and culture was global, spanning from ancient to contemporary. This search for knowledge and his quest to understand the human condition is evident in the varied collections he left behind and in his creation of the Ralph T. Coe Center for the Arts, a private operating 501(c)3 located in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Today, we continue to build on his legacy, committed to inspiring people of all ages and from all walks of life to be inquisitive and search beyond their own known experience.
For more about Ted and to enjoy his legacy, visit the Coe for a free tour and more about Ted and all of the Coe programs. We also still have a few copies of the book Connoisseurship & Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art. (Need we mention that Ted loved a good piece of pie?)
