Join us on Tuesday, February 24, at 7 p.m. at the Malden Public Library for a rare look at the world of high-profile art heists with art crime expert Anthony Amore. Anthony Amore is the Director of Security of the Isabella Stewart Art Museum in Boston and author of “Stealing Rembrandts: The Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists.” The fascinating stories Amore reveals span the globe from Stockholm to Boston and include a cast of exciting, diverse characters, from the robbers who steal priceless paintings, to international criminal masterminds, to security experts who track them down.
As Director of Security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Mr. Amore has for more than eight years served as the museum’s chief investigator into the 1990 theft of 13 priceless works of art from that institution. Prior to joining the Gardner Museum, he served as an Assistant Federal Security Director working to rebuild security at Logan International Airport after the attacks of 9/11. His next book, “The Art of the Con” will be published in 2015 by St. Martin’s Press. The discussion will be followed by a brief tour of the Converse Memorial Building art galleries.
