Art and cultural property crime, which includes theft, fraud, looting, and trafficking across state and international lines, is a looming criminal enterprise with estimated losses in the billions of dollars annually.
To recover these precious pieces—and to bring these criminals to justice—the FBI has a dedicated Art Crime Team supported by DOJ trial attorneys for prosecutions. The Bureau also runs the National Stolen Art File, a computerized index of reported stolen art and cultural properties for the use of law enforcement agencies across the world.
Join us for an evening with the FBI to discuss art crimes and how to avoid purchasing a fake.
Please note that photography is not allowed at this event. Complimentary garage parking onsite at YoungArts.
We are thankful for the support of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and for our collaboration with Miami New Drama' s FAKE, a world premiere play opening this month at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road (look out for our emails with more information about the play!)
After the talk, please join us at the YoungArts Gallery to view the Visual Arts, Design and Photography Exhibition now on view as part of National YoungArts Week. Curated by Rosie Gordon-Wallace, YoungArt's signature program that aims to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and community while offering Finalists the guidance needed to prepare for the next stage of their artistic development.
