Blue Sky Gallery (a.k.a. The Oregon Center for the Photographic Arts) is a non-profit exhibition space and archive for photography in Portland, Oregon. In 1975 a group of photographers (including Christopher Rauschenberg, son of Robert Rauschenberg) pooled their resources to start a small gallery. It grew to become one of the most important photography exhibition centers in the country.
A non-profit space dedicated to educating the public about photography, Blue Sky Gallery began by showing local artists and then slowly expanded to national and international artists including, Nan Goldin etc. In July 2008 they exhibited the last completed works by Robert Rauschenberg.
In 2007 Blue Sky raised 1.5 million dollars and moved into their new home on Portland's North Park Blocks in the building formerly Daisy Kingdom.
