The Griffin Museum at

The Griffin Museum of Photography opened in Winchester, MA as a non-profit in 1992. It is the embodiment of founder Arthur Griffin’s passion — to promote an appreciation of photographic art and a broader understanding of its visual, emotional, and social impact. Arthur’s goal was to share with visitors his enthusiasm for a medium that is diverse, imaginative and informative. All of us associated with the Griffin are committed to continuing to encourage Arthur’s vision through the works we exhibit, the programs we offer, the artists we encourage and through Arthur’s own work which we proudly display.

Executive Director and Curator
of The Griffin Museum of Photography


The Griffin Museum at Cōlson Gallery is a satellite gallery for the Griffin Museum creating a presence here in western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley. We plan to host an ever-changing selection of curated photographic works on behalf of the Museum. As the President and Director of Cōlson Gallery I couldn’t be more proud to be affiliated with any other institution and the ability to host the Griffin Museum’s collections is an honor for which I am always grateful.
