Heard Museum offers appraisal day Saturday

If you were unable to score tickets to Antiques Roadshow when the show came to Phoenix, learn more about those items lurking in your closet or collecting dust on your display shelves. Bring them to Heard Museum North Scottsdale during American Indian Art and Artifacts Appraisal Day. Leading Native art traders will examine your treasures and offer information about materials, dates, artists and traditions.

Appraisals will be offered 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Heard Museum North Scottsdale, 32633 N. Scottsdale Rd.

Will you be the next visitor to find that your old Navajo rug is worth a small fortune? Or that the old painting that nobody else in the family liked is worth $250,000, as one elated art owner discovered at a recent Appraisal Day? It's all part of the fun at this annual event sponsored by the Heard Museum Council.

The cost for appraisals is $30 for the first item, $25 for the second item and $20 for the third and subsequent items. Appraisals are limited to 10 per person. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.

For more information, call (480) 344-3380 or visit heard.org.
