The Eggleston Art Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and studying the work of American photographer William Eggleston (b. 1939). Based in the artist’s hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, the Foundation houses the Eggleston Archive and serves as a resource for research about the artist, his art and the subjects of the immense body of work he began producing in the late 1950s.
The Foundation supports arts and cultural institutions by facilitating loans of artwork and providing other assistance for exhibitions, publications and educational programs. Inspired by Eggleston's commitment to photography as 'a democratic way of looking around', the Foundation also works with a variety of partners to present arts programming that shows us how others see the world.
