Antiques Roadshow announces Shelburne Museum air dates
The 2023 Antiques Roadshow schedule has been announced and the segments that were filmed at Shelburne Museum last summer will air in spring 2023. The broadcast dates for the three episodes from Shelburne Museum are Mondays, April 24, May 1 and May 8 at 8 p.m. on PBS.

Antiques Roadshow visited the Shelburne Museum on July 12 and attracted a crowd of more than 3,000 people. The filming of this sold-out antique appraisal event took place throughout the museum campus.

Antiques Roadshow is PBS’s most-watched ongoing series and is seen by around 6 million viewers each week.

CVU graduate selected for art recognition
A 2022 Champlain Valley Union High graduate is featured in the 2022 Advanced Placement Art and Design digital exhibit. A photo by Iain Mahaffey of Charlotte is included in the exhibit.

The exhibit features 50 high school artists from six countries selected from more than 62,000 portfolios.

The exhibit is designed not only to showcase the rigor and excellence of the AP Art and Design portfolio but also as a teaching tool shared with AP Art and Design students worldwide. In this capacity, high-achieving students’ artwork and statements, teacher statements, and school leader statements help teach best practices and support arts advocacy.

Student participation in AP Art and Design requires that each student’s work is informed and guided by observation, research, experimentation, discussion, critical analysis and reflection, relating individual practices to the art world. Students document their ideas and practices to demonstrate conceptual and technical development to create a work portfolio.

In May, students submit portfolios for evaluation.

“AP Art and Design students consistently demonstrate innovation and creativity,” said Trevor Packer, head of the AP program. “Their portfolio development based on personal experiences continues to impress and inspire viewers.”

The Advanced Placement Art and Design program was founded in 1972, and as of 1978, about 4,500 students had completed portfolios for submission to the program. Over 62,000 students participate annually.

Research shows that AP students are better prepared for college, and those who receive a score of three or higher (on a scale of one to five) are eligible to receive college credit. AP students are more likely to enroll in college, stay in college, do well in their classes and graduate on time in four years. Success on AP exams helps students save money on college tuition and graduate with less student debt over the course of their education.
