The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts, is hosting the Picturing the Future Weekend this weekend, with a series of artist talks and lectures, culminating in a live photography auction on Sunday, November 15, 2020 at 3:00 PM. With over 70 prints featuring images by Pete Souza, Barbara Crane, Hold Feinstein, and Cig Harvey, and spanning a wide spectrum of photographic genres, these images will thrill both seasoned photography collectors, and new collectors. The proceeds of the auction benefit The Griffin Museum of Photography, and helps support the Griffin’s educational programs, exhibitions and operations. This is our main fundraising event of the year!

The Griffin Museum of Photography is a nonprofit 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 photography.

The Picturing the Future photography auction features original photographs from established photographic luminaries such as; Pete Souza, John Paul Caponigro, Barbara Crane, Elsa Dorfman, Jim Dow, Harold Feinstein, John Goodman, Cig Harvey, David Hilliard, Lou Jones, David Levinthal, Rania Matar, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, Olivia Parker, Vaughn Sills, Joyce Tenneson, George Tice, Bradford Washburn, William Wegman, Ernest Withers and so many more. Also available is a coveted and highly collectable complete set of “baseball” trading cards by Mike Mandel. A number of these cards are in major museum collections. We are also pleased to introduce you to works from the next generation of creative artists, Keiko Hiromi, Jennifer McClure, Aline Smithson and Sal Taylor Kydd among others. A full list of photographers in the auction are available now.

Participation in the auction is free, however you must register in advance in order to bid. The photographs up for auction are currently available to preview: https://www.invaluable.com/catalog/o6s2gubehl.

I do hope you'll consider covering this exciting event, which provides funding for an important local non-profit, The Griffin Museum of Photography. Paula Tognarelli, the Griffin Museum’s Executive Director and Curator, is also available for interviews to talk about the Picturing The Future photography auction, and what the Griffin Museum has planned for the rest of the year.
