Coulter was equally adept as a painter, etcher, weaver, ceramicist, and lecturer. She was the first print curator at the Art Institute of Chicago and moved to California in 1915 to chair the Arts and Crafts jury at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco.

Called Cathedral Rocks because they reminded early visitors to Yosemite of Gothic architecture, these slender columns of granite rise 3,000 feet above the valley floor.

The artist, Mary J. Coulter; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1938.
