American Indian Art, Artifacts Appraisal Day to be March 19

Discover the history and value behind the treasures collected over the years, at the semi-annual Heard Museum American Indian Art & Artifacts Appraisal Day on March 19.

Top Native-art traders will examine baskets, textiles, pottery, jewelry, carvings, paintings, sculptures, and other Native art pieces. Appraisers will also provide detailed information on materials, dates, artists and the traditions of the Native art pieces.

Visitors have the opportunity to find out if their items are worth a small or large fortune, as did one lucky owner of a 1850s-era deer skin dress, who from a past appraisal found it was actually worth $70,000.

The American Indian Art & Appraisal Day is presented by the Heard Museum Council and will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on March 19, located in the Steele Auditorium.
