  • This location is shown only to members

Robert K. Wittman, author of the New York Times bestseller, "Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures", talks about the "proofs" necessary to solve art theft cases and the lengths to which investigators must go to get the job done.

Free admission. Registration suggested(No credit card number needed).

Wittman is a former Senior Investigator/Founder of the FBI's National Art Crime Team and 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.

    He was an interesting, enthusiastic speaker and it's great to know someone is taking the time to fight this type of crime. It's a shame the justice system doesn't give out sentences commensurate with the harm of these crimes against all humanity's heritage.

    What a great speaker! He had to be in order to con the art thief's in FBI sting operations.

    At the stairs leading down to the lecture hall is the sign in desk. One of the organizers will be there with a meetup sign until door closes at 6. Expecting a bunch of folks from another group as well. So if it's not Sara or me, it will be Kristin from the other group holding the sign. If you come in a bit earlier, we can try to get seated together. If not enjoy the lecture anyway.

    I thought I could go but immediately after signing up I realized I had to go to my neice's dance recital tomorrow. I "unRSVP'd" but I guess it didn't stick. I apologize. I had a "tix" reservation too. Do I need to cancel that somehow?

      No problem Zahra. See you at some other event.
