The History and Legacy of Calligraphy at Reed

Thursday, September 18, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Psychology 102-103
This event is open to the public.

Throughout the Pacific Northwest, the legacy of Lloyd Reynolds - and the calligraphy program he established at Reed College - has been carried on by two generations of his former students. Along with the work of Reynolds' successor, Robert Palladino, the calligraphy program at Reed has had an incalculable influence on the field of letter arts from poetry to digital typography. However, since the formal dissolution of the calligraphy program and its removal from the Reed curriculum in the 1980s, there is little living evidence of Reed's illustrious calligraphic heritage on campus. In an effort to reintroduce the calligraphic arts to the Reed community, the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery launched The Calligraphy Initiative in Honor of Lloyd J. Reynolds in the fall of 2012.

Join Calligraphy Initiative coordinator Gregory MacNaughton '89 for an illustrated presentation on the past, present, and future of calligraphy at Reed College.
