Celebrating 55 years: History of the Photographic Art & Science Foundation / The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum
The Hall of Fame is the result of a project that began in 1965 by the Photographic Arts and Science Foundation. Members of the Professional Photographers of America originally created the foundation to promote photographic history by inducting historically significant photographers and inventors into a Photography Hall of Fame. However, no physical structure existed to commemorate Hall of Fame inductees or to display the Foundation’s photographic and historical collection.
After twelve years of receiving unique prints and antique camera equipment from across the country, the foundation chose to exhibit the growing collection. The original Photography Hall of Fame opened in 1977 as part of the University Museums at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.
In 1983 the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum moved from the Brooks Institute to the Kirkpatrick Center in Oklahoma City. There, the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum traced the art, history, and technology of photographic image making.
In 2013, the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum embarked on the largest capital campaign in its history and relocated the museum to the Grand Center Arts District in St. Louis, Missouri. The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum now occupies 6,000 square feet of gallery and exhibition space in one of the country’s densest cultural districts.
In 2014, the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum started its reach internationally with its first exchange trip with St. Louis sister city, Nanjing, China.
Today, works from more than 500 artists and innovators and over 2000 cameras represent the Hall of Fame’s permanent collection. Like the photographic industry itself, the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum continues to evolve offering lectures, workshops, curatorial sessions, sharing the work of inductees, exhibitions, and innovative ways to stay relevant to achieving its mission.
