Preserving the artist's heritage

Mission

Senior Artists Initiative serves visual artists and museums in the Philadelphia region through educational programming at its website and by producing videos that document the lives of exhibiting artists and artists with unique aspects to their work or lives.


Mission Fulfillment 


Senior Artists Initiative will concentrate its efforts on the following projects. 


A website that provides educational programming to inform established and emerging artists with essential business knowledge for a career in the visual arts including inventorying and valuation of artwork, estate preparation, planning for the future, business planning, retirement planning, artists rights, and working with museums.


A video program that features Philadelphia regional artists who have distinguished themselves by some unique features of their work or by having contributed to social change, or other recognition that deviates them from the norm.


A video production service that assists Philadelphia regional art museums to present documentaries about exhibiting artists, which will be used in conjunction with future exhibits and for other museum purposes. 


All video productions will explore significant moments in an artist’s life, the approach to work and techniques, and insights into a life in the visual fine arts universe.
