Canton Museum of Arts presents Intent to Decieve. Fakes and Forgeries at Edgewood Community Center

Tue, Feb 7, 2017 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Delving into the psyche and behavior of art forgers in the 20th century
through the present day, Intent to Deceive: Fakes and Forgeries in the
Art World offers insight into some of the world’s most notorious con
artists and the museums subject to their deceit. At times, art forgers have
garnered public sympathy by throwing onto themselves the stereotype of
a talented but undiscovered artist. This dynamic lecture, however,
de-romanticizes art fraud to show it is not a victimless crime. The
forgeries, each a crime of opportunity, come from a cunning and
deliberate intent to deceive. Hosted at Edgewood, 6852 Market Ave N, Canton, OH 330 498 0323
Free to public. Light refreshments to follow.
