The Arthur Griffin Foundation for Winchester was established by renowned nationally acclaimed photographer and Winchester resident, Arthur Griffin, to provide scholarships and grants to support the education of young visual artists in pursuit of a professional career in the visual arts and K-12 innovative art programs within the Winchester Public Schools Art Department.
For seventy years, Arthur Griffin (1903-2001) strolled and studied the streets and paths of Winchester, his beloved adopted hometown. Here, the renowned photographer captured the spirit of New England in the brick, foliage, and sunsets of an iconic Massachusetts town.
His art achieved national acclaim; and his legacy lives on with us.
Upon his death, the Arthur Griffin Foundation became his voice and vehicle to support civic programs that would benefit Winchester and its residents. Through scholarships and grants, we aim to preserve and enhance the beauty of the community.
We thank our devoted Arthur Griffin Foundation current and emeritus trustees for their committed support to the Winchester residences student artist educational grant and scholarship programs.
Independent of the Arthur Griffin Museum of Photography, our foundation is recognized as a section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
