Celebrating the Art of Photography...

Welcome to the Griffin Museum of Photography, a nonprofit 501(c)3 public charity organization dedicated solely to the art of photography. Through our many exhibitions, programs and lectures, we strive to encourage a broader understanding and appreciation of the visual, emotional and social impact of photographic art.

At the Griffin Museum, you will find exhibitions from well-known photographers to those emerging on the scene that explore important themes and thought-provoking ideas. All of our exhibitions and programs are designed to encourage the passionate exploration of the art of photography.

The Griffin Museum of Photography is honored to announce that OneWorld Boston, a Cummings Foundation affiliate has awarded the museum a $100,000 gift in support of our organization's worthwhile endeavor to promote a broader understanding of photography's visual, emotional and social impact.
