Anthony Bannon of George Eastman House Leaves for New Role at Buffalo State College

Posted By Administration, Sunday, November 11, 2012
Updated: Monday, December 16, 2013

Bannon's announcement of retirement last year allowed a number of institutions time to offer the celebrated George Eastman House Director new positions. Bannon accepted a post at Buffalo State College.

Lured from retirement Bannon will take a dual role at Buffalo State- he will work on community service and volunteerism with the college president and will lead the Burchfield-Penny Art Center as Executive Director. Bannon had served as Director of the Center for 11 years in the mid 80's - mid 90's. He will search for and groom the Center's next Director.

Bannon will be missed at George Eastman House; with 16 years of dedication to the institution, Bannon is the longest-serving Director. Notable accomplishments are many, but perhaps some of the most relevant were the leadership he inspired related to digital photographic media and image sharing. In the 90's when digital was new and perhaps seemed trite or fleeting, Bannon "pushed hard;" George Eastman House is also a leader in social media with an award-winning track redord. As one of the first few to join flickr the institution now has an astonishing 200,000 images available for view online through the site. Bannon's foresight will be missed by the George Eastman House but certainly be of beneficial growth to Buffalo State College.
