Furman University Special Collections and Archives is holding a lecture on March 20 called Value Added: Objects for Sale and Saving. The event will feature Scott Derrick, a Furman employee and certified auctioneer, and Helen Hockwalt, curator of the Pickens County Museum of Art and History. Derrick will describe the process of assessing the monetary value of items offered for sale, and how to ensure that the items meet or exceed that estimated value at auction. Hockwalt will discuss the historical and cultural value of items to a museum’s collection, describing their ability to illustrate and enrich the narrative of place and the shared identity of its inhabitants. She will also illustrate the effects of preservation and the resulting impact on both individual and institutional worth.
The event will tie into the current Special Collections and Archives exhibit F.U. All the Time! which features an assortment of items with both intrinsic and historical value.
Please join us for this special event!
