Anthony Amore to Discuss Gardner Museum Heist and Other Notorious Art Thefts

Fisher College is proud to announce today the addition of world-renowned stolen art sleuth Anthony Amore to its acclaimed speaker series "Lessons Learned: A Six-Part Series." Two decades ago, two thieves disguised as police officers broke into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and escaped with 13 priceless works of art.

For the last several years, Anthony Amore, director of security for the Gardner Museum, has investigated leads and pored over evidence of the heist, the FBI’s greatest unsolved art theft. During the "Lessons Learned" discussion, Amore will lay out the events of that ill-fated night, drawing on little-known facts and a general sense of mystery that surrounds this CLASSIC CAPER. Amore will also discuss his bestseller, "Stealing Rembrandts: The Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists." The book is a spellbinding journey into the high-stakes world of art theft.

Prior to joining the Gardner Museum, Amore was an assistant federal security director with the Transportation Security Administration, where he worked to rebuild security at Logan International Airport after the attacks of 9/11. He has also served as a special agent with the Federal Aviation Administration, where he was the lead agent responding to the Richard Reid "Shoebomber" attack. Mr. Amore is now a lecturer on Homeland Security issues at Fisher College.

A Q&A session will follow Mr. Amore’s presentation, and autographed copies of Stealing Rembrandts will be available for purchase at the event.
