"True Tales from the FBI's Real Indiana Jones"
Robert K. Wittman, Founder, FBI Art Crime Team and author
Reservations required*

The Wall Street Journal called him "a living legend." The Times of London dubbed him "The
most famous art detective in the world." Robert Wittman founded the FBI's National Art Crime
Team and served for 20 years as the FBI's investigative expert in this field. He is responsible
for recovering more than $300 million in stolen art and cultural property around the world. Since
retiring from the FBI in 2008, he authored the New York Times Best Seller "Priceless: How I
Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures." Wittman will speak about his FBI
career, leading audiences through notorious art heists and incredibly daring undercover
recoveries.

Wittman will sign copies of his book Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's
Stolen Treasures
in the lobby of the museum following the program. Books are available for
purchase in the Museum Shop.

Please specify the event you wish to attend (Wittman).
