On March 18, 1990, thirteen works of art, today worth over $500 million, were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history. In The Art Forger, by B.A. Shapiro, Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, makes a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful art gallery owner, that traps her in the middle of this intriguing mystery.
Arts Center East launches Poetry Rocks, a quarterly poetry series, on Sunday, February 26 at 2:00 pm. Featured readers will be Matthew Shelton, an internationally published poet and translator of poetry written in more than five languages; Gabriela Garcia-Sanchez, a UCONN senior; and Kayleigh Perkins and Kimberly McGuire, two Rockville High School poets who have won national awards for their work.
