What are some of the greatest art crimes that the FBI has investigated?
Special Agent Christopher McKeogh will discuss some of the most prominent art thefts that he's examined, including a few that have local connections, during a sold-out presentation at Niagara University's Castellani Art Museum at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14.
McKeogh has spent 14 years as an FBI special agent, and currently exclusively investigates art crime matters in the FBI's New York office. His efforts have led to the arrest and conviction of numerous perpetrators of art crime and the recovery of countless works of art, from antiquity to modern.
A former university science professor, McKeogh holds two master's degrees in physics.
The event is sponsored by the Castellani Art Museum, Niagara University's Office of Continuing Education, the university's criminal justice student association, and the FBI's Buffalo field office.
For more information, call the Castellani Art Museum at 716-286-8201.
