The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of contemporary and historical visual art exhibitions, lectures, and events. A schedule of 3-4 exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community exceptional art that would not otherwise be seen in the region. Exhibitions are curated and organized by the director, often in conjunction with courses and special academic programs. The Cooley Gallery also seeks to meet the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed's distinctive humanities program.
