Preserving the artist's heritage

Welcome to the Senior Artists Initiative Website.

Senior Artists Initiative serves artists and artists’ heirs in the Philadelphia, PA region by providing educational information about preserving artists’ heritages through a knowledge base of topics like estate planning, retirement planning, artists rights, valuation of art, art inventorying, and the disposition of estate art.

We produce video recordings to tell the story of recognized Philadelphia regional visual artists through our Featured Artists Program as well as assist regional museums in creating videos of artists whose works are to be exhibited.
