Art Crimes [91]

Thursdays, Nov 6 & 13,1 – 2:30 pm | Pauley Center Conference Room
Dr. F. Johanna Minich,, Adjunct Professor of Art History, University of Mary Washington
Art crime is currently the third-highest grossing criminal enterprise worldwide. This multibillion dollar global industry has a destructive impact on world cultures as well as the world of legitimate art collecting. In this two-part seminar, participants learn about the four major types of art crime  —theft, forgery, fakes, and looting — famous examples of each, and international efforts for repatriation.
