Gordon Parks was a catalyst for social justice and The Gordon Parks Foundation aims to perpetuate that legacy by supporting artistic and educational activities that advance what Gordon described as "the common search for a better life and a better world." In addition to preserving Parks’s creative work and making his archive available to scholars, curators, and students through exhibitions and books around the world, we have spent the last decade supporting our educational initiatives. Your support enables us to effectively preserve and promote the work and legacy of Gordon Parks and support the next generation of artists.
The Gordon Parks Arts & Social Justice Fund is dedicated to carrying on Gordon Parks's legacy and providing vital support to current and future generations of artists following in his footsteps. Our public programs, exhibitions, as well as annual scholarships, prizes, and fellowships are made possible through The Gordon Parks Arts & Social Justice Fund, which is supported by the donations of individuals, corporations, and foundations.
