We partnered with Antiques Roadshow earlier this year for the Antiques Roadshow Open Call – asking enthusiasts to submit videos about their antiques. The project gained national publication recognition early on, and caught the eye of a New York Times writer after she viewed some of more “quarky” entries. The article discusses the “Reality TV” aspect of the Open Call, and names submissions that stood out and won tickets to live Antiques Roadshow appraisal events.
Visit the article at: NYTimes.com: Princeton’s Faculty Room and Britain’s Rail Posters, and you’re highly encouraged to watch all submissions at http://lab.wgbh.org/roadshow. One submission showcases the remains of “Jumbo”, the famous Barnum and Bailey Circus elephant!
