The Buffalo Society of Artists has begun the Video Archive Project, in collaboration with the Burchfield Penney Art Center, in order to preserve a history of our region’s prominent visual artists.  These recorded histories will be archived at the Burchfield Penney Art Center for future educational, historical and cultural endeavors.  The proceeds of the auction will be used to help fund the many segments of this project.  Segments of the raw footage will be on view during the Fundraiser.
