Many of the world’s finest collections began with the desire for a single object. Passion for the hunt often begins in childhood, building collections of stamps, rocks, baseball cards, or coins.

Rekindle that inspiration at MESDA’s upcoming seminar, Good, Better, Best: Collecting for the 21st Century. Learn to discover valuable and “not so valuable” objects from experts who have advised collectors and museums for decades, including veterans of the television programs Antiques Roadshow and History Detectives. Hear anecdotes from collectors and share your own.

Take part in a number of hands-on sessions with curators and recognized experts utilizing MESDA’s renowned collection of southern decorative arts.

Featured presenters for this informative seminar are Ken Farmer, Wes Cowan and Collette Loll.
