$25 billion worth of art. The donor, long-dead Albert Barnes, intended that this matchless collection never leave its original home. Decades later, literally against his will, the Barnes Collection is moved—some say stolen—in 2012, to downtown Philadelphia, where a much wider audience can appreciate it.
Watch The Art of the Steal, the award-winning documentary, and then join in a lively examination of this turn of events with expert panelists from IUPUI and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
