April 2nd, 1997
Philadelphia Stories Video Program

From March 4 through May 18, 1997, the Video Gallery of the Philadelphia Museum of Art will present Philadelphia Stories, an exhibition of works by local artists using the landmarks, neighborhoods and residents of Philadelphia as their subjects. Participants include established and emerging video makers, and their offerings represent the documentary, fictional narrative and experimental approaches that coexist in Philadelphia.

The videos in Philadelphia Stories are by Dorothea Braemer, Keith Fulton, Mike Kuetemeyer, Karen Lefkovitz, Tina Morton, Frances Negrón-Muntaner, Andres Nicolini, Michael O'Reilly, Jim Ospenson, Peter Rose, Anula Shetty and Lamar Williams. Their productions include visits with competing Ben Franklin impersonators, a documentary studying homelessness and housing activists, and a controversial proposal for a public-art project at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Programming in the Video Gallery, which is located in the Museum's Galleries of 20th-Century Art, is made possible by the generous support of the Women's Committee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
