Understanding Cultural Property - 2017

Fellow appraiser Kirsten Rabe Smolensky, JD, ISA CAPP of Minerva Appraisals, LLC sent me information on the 2017 Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association symposium, Understanding Cultural Property: A Path to Healing Through Communication being held in Santa Fe on May 22, 2017. There are some great presentations and speakers, and the fee is only $35.00 which is an amazing bargain for such an important symposium.

The ATADA reports on the symposium

Understanding Cultural Property -
A Path to Healing Through Communication

The Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association and the School for Advanced Research will present
Understanding Cultural Property: A Path to Healing Through Communication, with a full day public presentation by tribal representatives, specialized legal counsel, art professionals, museum personnel and various other interest groups.

The goal of the symposium is to inform the public about tribal values and to find positive and respectful solutions that will enhance rather than harm Southwest regional and tribal economic interests. Legislation will be covered by national legal experts, and the public will be introduced to and encouraged to participate in ATADA’s new Voluntary Returns initiative bringing privately-owned, important cultural objects directly back to the tribes.
