One of the foremost political artists working today, Sue Coe has documented the atrocities committed by people against animals, as well as the atrocities that humans commit against one another through racial, class and gender inequities. She has come to the conclusion that humankind's relationship to the natural environment is the most compelling social issue of our time. A firm believer in the power of the media to effect change, Coe’s work has been published in the New York Times, the New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Art News, and many other periodicals. Accessible to a broad audience, Sue Coe’s etchings, lithographs and woodcuts are popular and highly collected.

Co-sponsored by ArtsEngine, Living Arts and the U-M Museum of Art (UMMA).
