ASA Events

FBI Art Crime Presentation and Discussion
Please join us on Wednesday, March 15th, for a presentation by Special Agent Elizabeth Rivas of the FBI Art Crime Team, Los Angeles. Art and cultural property crime—which includes theft, fraud, looting, and trafficking across state and international lines—is a looming criminal enterprise with estimated losses in the billions of dollars annually. To recover these precious pieces—and to bring these criminals to justice—the FBI has a dedicated Art Crime Team of 16 special agents, supported by DOJ trial attorneys for prosecutions. The Bureau also runs the National Stolen Art File, a computerized index of reported stolen art and cultural properties for the use of law enforcement agencies across the world. The program will include the discussion of current and past investigations, theft, fraud, looting, trafficking, the recovery of stolen property and how Personal Property Appraisers fit into this process.
