Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns

Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis, Curator; Jennifer Fang, Associate Curator; Carey Wong, Exhibition Designer

Beyond the Gate was first presented by the Oregon Historical Society in spring, 2016 to a record breaking audience. At its close, the Oregon Historical Society donated the exhibition to the Portland Chinatown History Foundation for installation in Chinatown. A beautiful new permanent 2,500 square foot exhibition will include many of the same objects, a laundry vignette, newly fabricated panels, and professional museum lighting, cases and AV equipment.
