Dickinson will honor Sue Coe, an internationally acclaimed artist and activist whose paintings and prints explore animal rights, social injustice, capitalism and politics, with the college’s 2013 Arts Award on Nov. 1. The Arts Award presentation and a new Trout Gallery exhibition will cap off a multiday residency at the college during which Coe will share her work and ideas with the college community.

Coe, a U.K. native, attended London’s Royal College of Art before moving to New York in 1972. Her art has been published in The New York Times, The New Yorker and Rolling Stone, among many other prominent publications. She is the author of numerous books, including the award-winning Dead Meat, which documents Coe’s visits to farms, slaughterhouses and meatpacking companies throughout the U.S.
