Let’s Take a Look - December 2021


On December 15, 2021, MIAC staff are returning to the museum’s virtual lobby to look at your treasures for Let’s Take a Look. Bring a weaving, ceramic, piece of jewelry (or something else!) to our Zoom meeting, and curator of ethnology Tony Chavarria (Santa Clara Pueblo), curator of archaeological research collections Julia Clifton, and other staff members will attempt to identify and explain the item.

Curators are experts in items from the Southwest, but are willing to take a look at anything that is “brought in.” Previous attendees have often found that the experience of chatting with a group of curators is often just as—or perhaps even more—informative and enjoyable than the identification of the object itself.

Please note that federal and state policies prohibit curators from appraising an item; the museum neither appraises or authenticates works of art.
