Adopt-an-Artifact is back!
From Dr. Edmund Cairns Doctor’s Bag to a model of Fort Whoop-Up created by Dora Graham, from James Stewart’s Highland Costume Set to insecticide pads [“Sure Death For Flies and Ants”] dating back to the 1930s, we are now accepting bids on these and 18 other artifacts for symbolic adoption at the Adopt-an-Artifact website accessible from http://www.galtmuseum.com/ until 4:30 pm MST on November 30.
The successful bidder will receive a photo and description of their adopted artifact, a tax receipt for the value of their sponsorship, and an invitation to a Curator-led Behind-the-Scenes Collections Tour in 2010. This is the second year we've offered this initiative, which sees all artifacts remain in our care. We also retain ownership of the items.
There is already some furious bidding going on, and some items still looking to be adopted - check it out!
