Expired: Connoisseurship and good pie
The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian is presenting a major exhibition of Native American art, Connoisseurship and Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art. Ralph T. “Ted” Coe was a pioneer in the field of Native art studies, curating landmark exhibitions, writing seminal books, and promoting Native art connoisseurship. He was also a man who was known to travel hours out of his way to discover a new Native artist or a good slice of pie. Coe was trained as an art historian specializing in European art, but he ultimately found his life’s passion in Native American art, which he pursued, largely selftaught, through years of study combined with interactions with Native artists and community members. From Coe’s own collection of some 2,200 artworks that are now preserved by the foundation that bears his name, more than 200 works are being presented in the exhibition.
