Let's Take a Look
During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, staff from The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology are coming to MIAC's "virtual" lobby to look at your treasures. Curator of Ethnology Tony Chavarria (Santa Clara Pueblo) and other staff members will attempt to identify and explain any cultural item or historic object presented—they prefer to work with objects from the Southwest but are willing to take a look at anything that is "brought in." If they are unable to identify an object, the will point you in the right direction to someone who can. The discussions among the curators often become as much, or perhaps even more, informative than the identification of the object.
Federal and State policies prohibit the curators from appraising any artifact. The museum neither appraises or authenticates works of art. For information about art appraisals visit the web sites for American Society of Appraisers, or Art Dealers Association of America.
Registrants: Will individually meet with MIAC staff to discuss their items. Once you log into the Zoom meeting, you will automatically enter a waiting room and will be let in by the moderator once you reach the front of the line. You will then be asked to leave the meeting once your consultation is over.
