Wes Cowan is a familiar face on History Detectives and Antiques Roadshow. He holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Michigan and owns Cowan's Auctions, an auction house that specializes in historical Americana.
Wes will give a talk on collecting Americana, based on his vast knowledge of items from our national past, including furniture, folk art, political ephemera, Native American artifacts and rare old prints.
(Please note: Wes will not be offering appraisals, only his lively commentary on collecting American history.)
Open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
To learn more about Wes, see the article about him in the Fall 2009 LSA Magazine.
