The Cooley Gallery, Reed's intimate, academic museum, is closed for renovations that will enrich its work with artists, the Reed community, and audiences and collaborators near and far. Renovations include the development of a new Cooley website, with an enhanced exhibition archive, publication space, works from the Reed College Art Collection, and a special new space for Reed student research.

The Cooley travels to MoMA, New York! The Cooley’s original exhibition Gregg Bordowitz: I Wanna Be Well, opens May 31, 2020, at MoMA PS1. The exhibition was curated by Cooley Director Stephanie Snyder, and is organized at MoMA PS1 by Peter Eleey, Chief Curator, with Josephine Graf, Curatorial Assistant. The exhibition was previously presented at the Art Institute of Chicago. The exhibition opening is public, please join us!

October 13 – November 6, 2020, the Cooley will reopen with a screening, conversation, and writing project by filmmaker and Reed alumnus Roland Dahwen, whose first feature film, Borrufa, premieres at the Portland International Film Festival this March, 2020. Screenings on March 7 and 12, visit https://cinemaunbound.org/films/borrufa for tickets. See you there!

The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery.

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." Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region.
