Out to Lunch
Gift of the artist and D. Harold Byrd, Jr.
Coe uses humor to deal with environmental issues. In Out to Lunch, bears picnic in the shadow of the Teton Mountains. The painting evokes controversies over management of bears in the National Parks, especially concerning issues of food, of the interaction between humans and bears, and of the definition of wilderness.
