February 28, 2019, 5:30 pm7:00 pm

Screen Shot 2018-10-04 at 4.56.23 PMCarmel art advisor Lily Yu will discuss current examples, including some high profile cases of art that turned out to be fake, and some assumed fakes that turned out to be the genuine article. Using real life examples of collectible art, Lily will demonstrate the steps she takes to determine whether an artwork is genuine or a copy, and participants will leave with a better understanding of what should raise red flags when considering purchasing art, and when to call in an expert to evaluate the legitimacy of art that is owned, donated or inherited. Wine provided by Shale Canyon Wine will be served and after the talk,  the museum will remain open so art sleuths can practice their new found skills.

Lily Yu, certified art appraiser, advisor and curator,  offers over 20 years experience working in the fine art world. As owner of AGENT ART she is a highly sought-after advisor to private collectors, institutions and corporate clientele.
