MIAC Curators Examine Your Treasures

MIAC Curators gather in the lobby of the Museum on the third Wednesday of each month awaiting whatever treasures may walk through the door. This is your opportunity to bring a family heirloom, something special from your collection, or a piece you know nothing about. Naturally, they prefer items from the American Southwest (in keeping with the museum’s focus), but they will check out anything you bring in.

Federal law prohibits curators from "appraising" any items, but they will direct you to appropriate resources. For more information, visit this page: http://indianartsandculture.org/lets-take-a-look
