Art is in the eye of the beholder, whereas swollen retinas are in the eye of the bee holder. Get soul-stung with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to a lecture by art rescuer Robert K. Wittman (a $30 value), presented by the Allentown Art Museum. The event takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 31 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
As an FBI investigative expert in art, Robert K. Wittman has traveled the world recovering stolen statues and misplaced masterpieces. In addition to recovering more than $225 million worth of poached palettes in his 20 years with the FBI, he created the FBI's National Art Crime Team, which works to fight and prevent art theft and the illegal reproduction of sunsets without Mother Nature's expressed written consent. Immediately following the lecture, Wittman will sign copies of his New York Times bestselling book, Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures.
Founded in 1934, the Allentown Art Museum bolsters a blooming collection of more than 14,000 works of art and regularly hosts events and lectures to please its patrons' artistic appetites. As the museum undergoes expansion to accommodate its growing collection, it will hold events throughout the community and in surreal second dimensions.
Allentown Art Museum
Allentown Art Museum invites visitors to explore its collection of art from around the world, just as it's done for more than 80 years. Though the museum is primarily focused on American painting and sculpture, its collection also includes European Old Master works from the likes of Rembrandt as well as non-Western art, such as sculptures from India and Tibet.
