Please do not arrive at the event without a confirmed reservation with IFAR

In March 1990, in the early morning after St. Patrick's Day, thieves masquerading as policeman stole 13 works, including 11 paintings, from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Among the paintings were Vermeer's Concert and Rembrandt's only seascape. Twenty years later, the theft remains the most significant U.S. art theft in history, and it is still unsolved. This special program, organized with the cooperation of the Gardner Museum and both the FBI and US Attorney's Office in Boston, is a rare opportunity to learn more about the case from the people closest to it. It is a follow-up to the program IFAR organized -- also with the help of the FBI -- on the 10th anniversary of the theft, in March 2000. 

The program features talks and visuals, including excerpts from the documentary about the theft, "Stolen."  Q&A and a reception follow. 

IFAR gratefully acknowledges First Republic Bank for its sponsorship of this program.
