Bring your lunch or a snack and spend some time with your classmates watching the controversial documentary The Art of the Steal. The film traces the story of the Barnes Foundation and its $25 billion art collection through the fight over the collection’s future location. While the film has been celebrated by many (it was an official selection at the Toronto Film Festival, New York Film Festival and the AFI Film Festival and also received an 84% rating on Rotten Tomatoes), the film has also been criticized by some as providing only a one-sided view of the conflict (as covered by NPR). Come and see what the controversy is about and discuss it with us after the movie!
