    \ About


    We believe in the inherent magnificence of the arts and their extraordinary impact on everyday life. The mission of Patricia Reser Center for the Arts is to foster joy, imagination, connection, and understanding in our diverse community by presenting artistic, cultural, educational, and entertainment opportunities for all.


    Patricia Reser Center for the Arts unites us as artists, enthusiasts, individuals, and communities, linking us all with a sense of shared purpose and a touch of the sublime. The Reser is the cultural heart of a flourishing community centered in Beaverton, Oregon. It continuously enhances the cultural life of our region, bringing people together in a space that’s warm and welcoming, and where the art we present invites discovery, wonder, and flights of imagination. This place eliminates barriers and thrives on access, shared experience, and open hearts. The Reser honors the cultures and customs of its diverse community and, using the awesome power of the arts, creates opportunities for deeper understanding and authentic connections between people.

    Commitments to the Community

    We present artistic, cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences of quality and relevance, performances and exhibitions that reflect the diverse interests and passions of the people we serve. We present national and international artists and attractions; provide a performance home for regional arts organizations; promote the interests of artists; engage and develop new audiences; encourage participation in the arts; create opportunities for arts education; enhance the reputation of Beaverton as a regional destination; and strive always to be a genuine and indispensable contributor to the quality of life in our community. We seek to counter privilege with equity and access and engage thoughtfully with the cultural aspirations of our entire community.

    We keep these commitments with a level of integrity, care, professionalism, and prudent management that honors the City of Beaverton for its extraordinary support and earns The Reser widespread recognition for the excellence of its programs and services.
