Bring your own objects for Don’s professional appraisal and provenance. Don is donating a percentage of the proceeds from appraisals and sales to the Museum to benefit its educational exhibits and programs.

    Don is a strong supporter of the Museum’s First Peoples program, loaning for display handwoven one-of- kind baskets from his personal collection. He has been a lifelong collector, and gathered 19th and early 20th century baskets and baby carriers from groups throughout the United States. Each year, during the Museum’s annual First Peoples of California exhibit,(September through November), he mounts a basket exhibit in the Museum, always varying the selection shown.
