Film and Discussion: The Art of the Steal

Wednesday, January 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm


The Medford Film Collaborative presents the second installment of a new monthly series of thought-provoking films about art and artists with the showing of “The Art of the Steal.”

This film looks at the controversy surrounding the art collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes, a millionaire who amassed a remarkable selection of significant works during the early 20th century. Barnes sought to keep his priceless pieces together as part of his foundation even after his death, but the involvement of numerous parties led to the scattering of his collection. This documentary sheds light on how his wishes were violated by a handful of opportunistic individuals. A group discussion to share thoughts and opinions follows the film.

The film series is being presented by the Medford Film Collaborative in partnership with Sanctuary UCC Church; Coffee Shop Artists; Malden Creates; Howe Creative Studio & Gallery; Medford Arts Center, Inc.; First Baptist Church of Medford; and Pinnacle Mortgage Corp.
