Our featured guest this month is Ray Acosta who will talk about the documentary film "The Art of The Steal" which is about the theft by the City of Philadelpha of one of the largest collections of post-impressionist art in the world. The collection was gathered by Dr. Albert Barnes in thee early 20th century. An often difficult man, Barnes fell out with the City of Philadelpha and had his lawyers make an "iron clad" will to keep the collection out of the hands of the city. This is the story of how the Barnes Will was overturned.
