PERMANENT GALLERY


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

Beyond the Gate was created as a temporary exhibit for the Oregon Historical Society by Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis, Curator, with the help of Jennifer Fang Associate Curator, and Carey Wong, noted theater and opera set designer, as Exhibition Designer. It was presented for three months in spring, 2016 as a companion to the New York City show Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion and then dismantled. The Portland Chinatown Museum is deeply grateful to the Oregon Historical Society for enabling us to develop with the Chinese community the story of Portland's early Chinatowns as an exhibition and to bring that story home.
