New Year’s Resolution: Put Antiques Roadshow to work for you

See also

Whatever kind of art you like, you can probably see it in living color on Antiques Roadshow. This top rated PBS series produced by WGBH in Boston was originally produced by the BBC in England. The series has since expanded around the world, as far as Australia. Extensive video archives make this treasure trove of information available on demand.

The wide availability of Antiques Roadshow archives is especially good news for teachers. Many public school art programs have been impacted by budget cuts and this free, high quality information can help make up the difference. The broadcasts also include over one-hundred recordings on site with experts at local museums and historic sites where the Antiques Roadshow team has held appraisal events. Educators will also find this programming a good way to introduce students to art related careers.

Watching Antiques Roadshow can also provide good preparation to help organize an exhibition for your art club or a local art organization you work with. The Laguna Beach Museum of Art organized an art appraisal event on site with art experts from Bonham’s, a local auction house that engages many experts who also work on the set on the Antiques Roadshow tour. Watching different episodes of Antiques Roadshow can show you how to begin to sort through the huge volume of material that is a common part of organizing almost any art event. And New Year’s is an ideal time to make your own resolution to organize a new art event!

You can also make a New Year’s resolution to participate in a 2014 Antiques Roadshow appraisal event. Information about the 2014 schedule and ticket lotteries will be posted soon, on January 6, 2014 at this link. The new season will also begin broadcasting on KPBS San Diego on January 6 at 8 p.m.
