"We are thrilled with the overwhelming response to our announcement that we will relaunch the Ellis Boston Antiques Show, and grateful to the many exhibitors who have already shown their support for bringing a world class antiques show back to Boston, " comments co-producer Tony Fusco. "We will have other exciting additions to announce in the months ahead and we will be making some significant changes to the show's composition, marketing and positioning while building on an important tradition that spanned half of a century."
The Cyclorama provides the ideal venue for this exciting show. A large circular rotunda and adjacent salons encourage visitors to both linger and wander. The historic structure is located in the heart of the BCA complex, which boasts four theatres, a gallery, the Boston Ballet School, 50 artist studios and other facilities. There are more than a dozen "hot" restaurants and nightspots within a five-minute walk, making it a focal point for cultural life in the city.
“We're thrilled to be bringing The Ellis Boston Antiques Show back to the Cyclorama where the old Ellis started, " notes Fusco.
