October 13 – June 22, 2022
Opening reception was October 13, 2017 from 5-7 PM
The work was commissioned for a permanent exhibition.
The Griffin Museum is thrilled to have forged a partnership with our neighbor The Jenks Center (The Jenks) in Winchester, MA located at 109 Skillings Road in Winchester, MA.
An opening night reception for “Repose” took place on October 13, 2017 from 5-7 PM at the Jenks.
We have gone into Arthur Griffin’s archives to assemble a body of work called “Repose” specifically for The Jenks Center and the Griffin’s 25th Anniversary. All of the photographs were taken by renowned photographer and founder of the Griffin Museum of Photography at the Boston Common on a warm day in late May 1942. The collection depicts images that are warm, humorous and touching, revealing everyday customs of the times. This work will appear at The Jenks in a permanent exhibition. Curator Sally Reed and Executive Director Paula Tognarelli attended the reception to answer questions and observations about the images and exhibition.
A catalog of the exhibition is available.
