At the Griffis Art Center we offer space for the private moments of creative daring when pen is put to paper, or brush to canvas … when the thought may be uncertain and the idea still fragile. We do not force the outcome of the artists, but prefer to yield to artistic and cultural exploration -
new encounters, new directions, curiosity, and imagination.
The Griffis Art Center allows itself to be shaped and transformed by this creative process.
The Griffis Art Center, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit visual arts organization founded in 1989. The mission of the Art Center is to 1) cultivate and encourage contemporary fine art and artists, and 2) to create an opportunity for international exchange among artists and the community through the visual arts.
