Art Heist at the Kravis Center – Palm Beach County

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Wednesday, May 12th, 2021 at 5:37pm.

Palm Beach County residents are called to help solve an unsolved mystery at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Your help is needed to help solve an art heist. A real-life genius robbery of thirteen works of art, valued at half a billion dollars.  It is based on a true story of the world’s biggest art escapade. 

The “Art Heist” is a true crime moving show where socially distanced groups step through five walkable locations to gather clues. The amateur detectives interact with a wild group of cunning professional criminals, slimy con men, and disheveled art recovery experts.  

The tale is based on the largest art heist in history which took place on March 18, 1990.  On that day, two thieves disguised as police officers entered Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in the middle of the night. They disclosed to security guards that they were investigating a disturbance. Estimated at a half a billion dollars, 13 works of art, including paintings by Rembrandt, Manet and Vermeer were stolen. The $500 million pieces, as well as the thieves remain at large today. 

No two performances are ever the same, as the performers improvise with every dealing with the audience. The experience ends with an opportunity for you and your friends to become living art inside a giant picture frame. Post to your social media at #artheistexperience.
