For 110 years, SAR has been a careful steward of treasures from the Southwest and beyond. Now, in conjunction with SAR’s 110 Anniversary, participants can have their own treasures evaluated by Wes Cowan and his team on Saturday, June 24, 2017. What’s Your Treasure Worth? runs from noon to 5 p.m. in the Eric S. Dobkin Boardroom, School for Advanced Research, 660 Garcia Street (12-1 pm is the VIP hour reserved for $250 ticket holders). This event is open to the public and includes a verbal estimate for up to three items, that can be carried by hand, for $25 per person. 

Popularly known as a mainstay of the PBS program History Detectives and a featured guest appraiser on Antiques Roadshow, Cowan and his skilled team will provide a verbal estimate of value of your treasures. Bring your pieces—including American Indian art, fine and decorative art, autographs and manuscripts, books, maps, and other historical items, as well as fine jewelry and time pieces (no stamps, firearms, coins, or large pieces of furniture please).

Wes Cowan owns Cowan’s Auctions, Inc., of Cincinnati, Ohio, one of the leading auction houses in the country. Cowan’s has been named by Blouin Art Info as one of the top 150 auction houses in the world.

Time-block preregistrations are required and are first-come, first-served. Visit this link to register:

At the same time, 12-5 pm, SAR will be holding a tent sale of discounted books of popular titles published by SAR Press. Self-guided tours of SAR’s historic campus will give visitors a glimpse into Santa Fe’s past by experiencing the glorious 1920s estate. The book sale and informal tours are free and open to the public.
