On Saturday May 23, 2015, during ROM Big Weekend: Global Family and in conjunction with the exhibition “Generations,” artist-photographer Annu Matthew set up studio in the ROM galleries to take complimentary family photographs of ROM visitors. After a steady stream of interested parties that lasted all day, a total of 53 families were able to take advantage of the opportunity! Each received a free print, which was selected, edited and printed on the spot, and a digital file was emailed to them.

Last week Archaeological Services Inc. (ASI, @ArchaeologyTO) uncovered a schooner downtown Toronto near the waterfront. In the New World Archaeology lab that I supervise at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM, @ROMtoronto) we discussed the details of the story with excited interest as we worked.
