ABOUT THE EXHIBITION & Ed Friedman: The 23rd Annual Juried Exhibition will be named in honor of Ed Friedman, a celebrated Arlington-based photographer who unexpectedly passed away due to a tragic accident in July 2016. Ed was an active member of the Griffin Museum. His Old Schwamb Mill photographs were exhibited at the Griffin in 2011. He was also an active member of Gallery Galatea in SoWa and the Cambridge Art Association.
After earning a degree in physics from Carnegie Mellon University, he had a long career working with computers. For a long time, Ed focused on landscape photography, but broadened his approach to include street photography and portraiture. When not working on photographic projects, Friedman worked as a web developer. Ed Friedman was loved and remembered by many. During the 23rd exhibition the Griffin will exhibit a number of Ed Friedman’s photographs from his last body of work “Focus On: The Gun Culture.”
Alongside the juried exhibition, the Griffin Museum is organizing a series of professional development workshops presented by a diverse range of thought leaders. These workshops will share instrumental ideas, methods and tools to help build the business and legal foundation of a thriving artistic practice.
