Film: The Art of the Steal: It's Complicated


Saturday, May 17, 2014, 1 PM

Delve into one of the world's most fascinating controversies—the long and dramatic struggle for control of the Barnes Foundation, a private collection of art valued at more than $25 billion—with special guests Cory L. Nettles (Founder and Managing Director of Generation Growth Capital, Inc.) and Rita Harvey (Ph.D. candidate, University of Pennsylvania). The Art of the Steal is a documentary film that takes you behind the scenes, exploring the relationship between the Barnes Foundation and Lincoln University, a historically black college and university.

The Art of the Steal (2009) was a celebrated selection of the Toronto, New York, and AFI Film Festivals. 101 minutes

Sponsored by the Milwaukee Art Museum's African American Art Alliance and the Milwaukee Chapter of the Links, Incorporated, a women's non-profit organization.
