Calligraphy at Reed

May 22 – August 2012

This exhibit sheds some light on the history of calligraphy at Reed and the impact of Lloyd Reynolds’ teaching, showing a selection of his letterforms, correspondence, and student work.  The calligraphy that Reynolds taught at Reed from the late 1930s through 1969 remains a strong presence in college life.  Robert Palladino continued teaching that course through 1984, and since then there have been Paideia classes, Reunion themes, major exhibits, catalogs, and classes taught through the Cooley Gallery to school children, Reed students, and others.
