Light Work Receives Grant from The Gifford Foundation to Support Launch of New Online Collection

Light Work is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a $10,000 grant from The Gifford Foundation. With support from this grant, we will create high-resolution images for over 4,000 prints and objects in The Light Work Collection and launch a new online platform for viewing and researching the archive. Our aim is to make this important collection even more accessible to our local community as well as a broader audience of curators, scholars, and photography lovers around the globe.

The Gifford Foundation was established in 1954 as a private foundation serving Syracuse and the surrounding Central New York community. The Foundation supports individuals and organizations through grants and initiatives that build on community assets and promote positive change in the community.
