World-renowned art crime expert Dr. Noah Charney took to the stage at Fairfield University’s Quick Center for the Arts to present his lecture “Traffickers, Thieves and Forgers in the World of Art.” Instead of the suave art thieves depicted in film and movies, Charney spoke about the real criminals and economic consequences of art theft. Christopher “Kip” Bergstrom, the deputy commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, introduced Dr. Charney’s presentation. Attendees then joined Philip Eliasoph, art history professor and the moderator of Fairfield University’s Open VISIONS Forum, and assistant art history professor and the director of the Bellarmine Museum of Art Jill Deupi, for an informal discussion about art crimes.
