Let’s Take a Look!

Curators Examine Your Treasures

12:00 pm through 2:00 pm

Curators from The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and The Laboratory of Anthropology gather in lobby of MIAC to look at your treasures. They attempt to identify and explain any artifact or historic object presented to them. They prefer to work with objects from the Southwest but are willing to take a look at anything that is brought in. If they can not identify an object an attempt will be made to find someone who can. Sometimes, the discussion among the curators may become as much - or more informative - than the identification of the artifact.

Curators cannot appraise any items but can refer you to resources that will.

“Tres Generaciones: The Atkison-Hale Collection”

Friends of Indian Art Event

5:00 pm through 7:00 pm

In 1936 Leonard Atkison purchased the Nava-Hopi Indian Store in Boulder City, Nevada, where he sold both Navajo and Curio jewelry. His daughter, Cynthia Hale, would go on to work in museums, and his grandson, Scott Hale, in academia, both in Native arts. Together in 1999, they created Native American Art Appraisals, Inc., Cynthia and Scott will share family stories and professional observations from over 80 years in the Native arts market.
