Dickinson College in Carlisle will celebrate the award-winning art and life work of Sue Coe, an artist and activist whose paintings and prints explore animal rights, social injustice, capitalism and politics. The college will honor her with the 2013 Dickinson College Arts Award Arts Award on Nov. 1. The Trout Gallery will feature an exhibition of her work, Sue Coe: The Ghosts of Our Meat.

Dickinson's Arts Award honors an individual or group that has made an outstanding contribution to the creative or performing arts. Previous recipients of the award include dancer and choreographer Twyla Tharp, Pulitzer Prize winners David Mamet and Robert Frost, and Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney.

The Arts Award presentation and exhibit opening are the culmination of a residency at the college during which Coe will share her work and ideas with the college community. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, Nov. 1, 5-7 p.m. in The Trout Gallery, followed by the Arts Award ceremony in Rubendall Recital Hall

The Ghosts of Our Meat exhibition presents more than 40 paintings, drawings and prints from the past 25 years that address issues of animal rights, animal cruelty, the meatpacking industry and the ethics of meat consumption. The exhibition runs Nov. 1 through Feb. 28.
