The History of Artograph
Artograph was founded in Minneapolis in 1947 by three innovative and creative entrepreneurs, They wanted to start a company that produced time-saving devices for artists and engineers. After many ideas, one of the men, a promising wildlife artist, suggested developing a projector to help him enlarge his wildlife photos onto a canvas. Thus the first Artograph projector was born. This first projector was built from assorted automobile parts, a garage door track plywood, and bellows-all scavenged from a junk shop.
