Come get to know your State Museum! In celebration of Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month and as part of the Tucson Festival of Books, you’ll have the opportunity to go behind the scenes to meet curators, visit laboratories, and tour collections areas in the largest and busiest state-run archaeological curation facility in the nation. On Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 10:00-3:00, the Friends of the ASM Collections present their annual Benefit Sale on the ASM front lawn, featuring an array of items donated by individuals and estates including southwestern Native American pottery, jewelry, baskets, and more, at phenomenal prices, to benefit ASM’s ethnological collections. And from 10:00:4:00, on the lawn, the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society’s annual ASM Library Benefit Book Sale features an all new selection of used anthropology books with emphasis on the U.S. Southwest and northern Mexico plus general interest and history volumes, biographies, and novels, mostly priced at just $1 to $5 with 90% of the sale proceeds benefiting the ASM library.
