Professor Kate Nearpass Ogden from Stockton University presents an illustrated talk on the fascinating subject of “The History of Art Forgery and Stolen Art.” It should be hard to run off with something famous hanging in a museum, but Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” was lifted by workmen hiding in a closet, and Edvard Munch’s celebrated “Scream” was stolen twice, from two different museums.

The event is free, however people are asked to preregister at 609-597-3381.
