The Griffin Museum of Photography, a non-profit organization dedicated solely to the art of photography, is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year! As a public charity The Griffin Museum is dedicated solely to the language of photography. Through the many exhibitions, programs and lectures that they  produce, they strive to encourage a broader understanding and appreciation of the visual, emotional and social impact of the photograph. Through its network of eight galleries and 40-60 exhibitions, the Griffin Museum is at the cusp of cultural and artistic innovation in photography-all tirelessly overseen by the Griffin's brilliant Director, Paula Tognarelli. Ms. Tognarelli not only plans and over see's all 8 galleries exhibitions rotating at all times, but juries exhibitions and reviews portfolio's around the world, as well as mentoring grammar school children and all of the photography community at large all times! Whew! I'm exhausted imaging what a day in the life of Paula Tognarelli is all about.

In October, The Griffin Museum of Photography with collaborators SoWa Boston, Boston University, Lesley University, Art New England and Gallery Kayafas, brings FlashPoint Boston, a photography festival, to Boston. Donate here
