Preserving the artist's heritage
Artists Videos

SAI began producing video documentaries of recognized Philadelphia region visual artists in 1999 through its Inventory & Oral History Project, which ended in 2019. During that period the oral histories of 100 artists were video recorded. In the earliest days the videos were recorded on VHS tape then on digital video tape, and finally on hight definition video.  The quality of the videos vary depending upon the technology available at the tome of recording.


In 2019 SAI initiated two new video programs to continue preserving the heritage of artists in our region. The Featured Artists Program and the Museum Video Project videos will published on this website as they are completed. Artists and Museum interested in learning more about the programs should click on the corresponding link in the navigation bar to the left. Those interested in participating in either program should email us through the Contact link.
