The de Saisset holds one of the most important collections of video art in the entire Bay Area. Comprised of 280 rare videos and films, the collection represents a period in which the Museum was a leader in commissioning and exhibiting works of video art. This area of the collection includes video works by internationally recognized artists Douglas Davis, Terry Fox, Paul Kos, and Bill Viola.

Recently, the Museum implemented a preservation and access project for this component of the collection, and as a result the de Saisset has new digital and analog copies of significant video works.
