Art Theft Expert Outlines His Career

The Norristown-based Times Herald covered a visit to Ursinus by Robert K. Wittman, former FBI agent and member of the FBI’s national art crime team. Wittman, who was a guest on Stephen Colbert’s show in 2011, is now involved in the recovery and restitution of stolen or illegally acquired pieces of art and objects of cultural heritage.  His visit was part of the Interdisciplinary Careers in the Creative Arts Lecture Series sponsored by the Art and Art History departments.
