About The Griffin Museum

Opened in 1992, the Griffin Museum, a 501 (c)(3) public charity, is the embodiment of founder Arthur Griffin’s passion — to promote an appreciation of photographic art and a broader understanding of its visual, emotional, and social impact.

Arthur’s goal was to share with visitors his enthusiasm for a medium that is diverse, imaginative and informative. We are committed to continuing to encourage Arthur’s vision through the works we exhibit, the programs we offer, the artists we encourage and through Arthur’s own work which we proudly display.

Today, the Griffin Museum houses three galleries, and 5 satellite galleries dedicated solely to the exhibition of photographic arts.

About GTI Properties

GTI Properties began three decades ago with a focus on developing emerging city neighborhoods. In the early years, GTI founder Mario Nicosia began by acquiring real estate on St. Botolph Street; restoring old brownstones into first-class apartments and helping lead the transformation of this South End neighborhood into one of Boston’s most desirable.

Years later, GTI & Mr. Nicosia turned their attention to the vacant mill buildings on the eastern edge of the South End. This area, now known as SoWa, has become Boston’s epicenter for artists, modern residences, and creative businesses. Today, GTI Properties is now one of Boston’s largest and most respected property management companies, and while we’ve grown and expanded from our humble beginnings, we remain committed to having a positive impact on all of Boston’s communities and residents.
