This exhibition explores the determination of Mai Coe’s grandfather, Captain Peleg Gifford, in the unpredictable and perilous whaling world of the 1800s and her father, H. H. Rogers, whose ambitious pursuit of alternative oil followed the whaling industry decline. The resulting fortune of her trailblazing predecessors would enable the Coes to purchase Planting Fields, transforming Mai into a progressive patroness of art, culture and design.
