Exhibits & Programs

Coming August 16, 2018 - IMPRINT Opening
The relationship of the imprint between artist and audience is emotional and transcends markets, sales, and high-stakes auctions. Six leading printmakers, Eliza Naranjo Morse, Jamison Chas Banks (Seneca-Cayuga, Cherokee), Jason Garcia (Santa Clara Pueblo Tewa), Terran Last Gun (Piikani), Dakota Mace (Dine (Navajo)), and Jacob Meders (Mechoopda/Maidu), along with Coe curators Bess Murphy and Nina Sanders (Apsaalooke) have spent the past year working collaboratively to build IMPRINT. The exhibition will not only appear on the Coe Center walls, but in public spaces as well.

IMPRINT brings art to the public and the public to art in widely accessible ways through the use of repurposed newspaper boxes inspired by and as direct extensions of Meders' ongoing project Warbird Press, wheat-pasted posters around town, and free print giveaways.

IMPRINT will also engage in collaborations with other institutions across Santa Fe. Santa Fe's mobile art space, Axle Contemporary will present part of this exhibition as THE IMPRINTMOBILE, from August 3-26. The partnership with Axle increases the flexibility of approach and outreach that is fundamental to this exhibition. Additionally, IMPRINT will also collaborate with Meow Wolf on public programming, including a free family printmaking event.
