Description

Priceless - JacketFebruary 27
Wednesday, 6:00 pm
Year of Proof Lecture
"Recovering the Priceless: The Proof is in the Undercover Operation to Regain our Heritage!"

Robert K. Wittman, former Senior Investigator/Founder of the FBI's National Art Crime Team and author of the New York Times bestseller, "Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures," is responsible for the recovery of more than $300 million worth of stolen art and cultural property. As an FBI Special Agent, Wittman conducted investigations throughout the world, often working undercover to rescue artifacts that ran the gamut from stolen Rembrandt's, to tomb-robbed ancient Peruvian golden artifacts, to Geronimo's eagle-feathered war bonnet. In this engrossing lecture, Wittman talks about the "proofs" necessary to solve these types of cases and the lengths to which investigators must go to get the job done. Free admission. Registration suggested. For more information, call 215.898.2680.
