Funding drive for Wizard of Oz slippers soars over the rainbow to more than $300,000

It took just seven days for "Wizard of Oz" nostalgics to raise more than $300,000 in a crowdfunding drive to restore Dorothy's iconic slippers to their ruby red glory. The US Smithsonian's Museum of American History, which owns the slippers, said Monday that its Kickstarter campaign had gone "over the rainbow." The sequined pumps were famously worn by Judy Garland as she danced down the yellow brick road in the 1939 musical, one of Hollywood's first color films. Support for restoring them "spanned six continents and 41 countries," the museum said in a statement. Since the crowdfunding campaign runs for another 23 more days, the museum announced a "stretch goal" that "will involve another beloved Wizard of Oz character." It did not say which one. The Smithsonian Institution -- which oversees museums and research centers in and near Washington -- receives federal funds to support its core operations, but that money does not cover repairing the shoes.

TEFAF New York Fall 2016 opens to rave review and record crowds

The highly anticipated first edition of TEFAF New York Fall 2016 opened its doors to the public on Saturday, October 22nd. The 94 world-class specialist dealers from 14 countries, showing museum-quality fine art and antiques, in the Park Avenue Armory, delivered the total “TEFAF experience.” The light and airy atmosphere was much appreciated by the attendees of the historic building that was completely transformed by Dutch designer Tom Postma especially for the fair. Exhibitors at the fair have been extremely positive about the event. Hicham Aboutaam of Phoenix Ancient Art, who presented a remarkable “Park Avenue Pantheon,” says, "The VIP preview day was spectacularly crowded. There were many new faces along with well-known international collectors and an impressive number of people from the museum world, all with their eye on their next acquisition. We are extremely happy with TEFAF and their celebration of the

Earliest 10 Commandments tablet slated for Heritage Auctions

The world's earliest-known stone inscription of the 10 Commandments — one of the most important documents in history, and a "national treasure" of Israel — will be offered Nov. 16, 2016 by Heritage Auctions in the Properties of the Living Torah Museum Auction in Beverly Hills, California. The tablet is the centerpiece of an offering of Bible-related historical artifacts, all thoroughly researched and authenticated, owned by the Living Torah Museum in Brooklyn, New York. The tablet has an opening bid of $250,000. "There is nothing more fundamental to our shared heritage than the 10 Commandments," said David Michaels, Director of Antiquities for Heritage Auctions, "and Heritage Auctions is honored and privileged to be entrusted with the sale of this remarkable piece of Biblical history. We thank the Living Torah Museum and its creator, Rabbi Saul Deutsch, for this opportunity." The two-foot-square marble slab, inscribed in an earl

Big data reveals mixed authorship in 17 Shakespeare plays

Seventeen plays attributed to William Shakespeare were written in collaboration with other playwrights, according to an edition of his works coming out this month that uses "big data" to reveal the mixed authorship. Shakespeare's reputed rival Christopher Marlowe is credited as co-writer in the Henry VI trilogy of plays while playwright Thomas Middleton is credited as an adaptor for "All's Well That Ends Well". The total number of 17 out of 44 Shakespeare plays is around double the eight in 39 plays identified in the last edition of the complete works by the Oxford University Press in 1986. Work on the new edition began in January 2009 and 18 scholars in five countries tussled with the authorship issues. Editors said the discoveries showed that rather than being rivals that influenced each other, Shakespeare and Marlowe actually worked with each other on the plays, thought to have been written in 1591. "A lot

Exhibition illuminates Syria's contributions to world heritage

The Aga Khan Museum opened its exhibition Syria: A Living History on October 15, 2016. The exhibition brings together over 5,000 years of art highlighting the contributions that the diverse cultures within Syria — Mesopotamian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Persian, Ottoman, and Arab — have made to world heritage. The exhibition, which represents collaboration between seven international museums and private collections, will run through February 26, 2017. Many of the works of art are being exhibited together for the first time and will give audiences a unique insight into the marvellous cultural traditions of both ancient and present-day Syria, thereby underscoring the dialogue between these traditions throughout the ages. “We hope that a better appreciation of Syria’s priceless contributions to the world’s heritage over five millennia will add urgency to the efforts to bring about peace and reconciliation i
