BENEFITING: GEORGE EASTMAN MUSEUM
EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2012
George Eastman House is an independent nonprofit museum and educational institution that tells the story of photography and motion pictures—media that have changed and continue to change our perception of the world.
Our mission is to:
- collect and preserve objects that are of significance to photography, motion pictures, and the life of George Eastman;
- build information resources to provide the means for both scholarly research and recreational inquiry;
- keep and care for images, literature, and technology to tell the story of photography and the motion picture in history and in culture; and
- care for George Eastman’s house, gardens, and archives, maintaining them for public enjoyment and as a memorial to his contribution to our lives and our times.
We do these things to inspire discovery and learning—supporting the education of a regional, national, and international audience.
