The cases are sited in Reeds Hauser Memorial Library, in the center of the first floor reading room. The cases were donated to Reed by John and Betty Gray. When not featuring contemporary art, the cases display small-scale sculpturessuch as exemplary Pre-Columbian artifactsthat were also generous gifts to Reed from John and Betty Gray.
