Circles of Support members are invited to an evening with Author Ulrich Boser.
Ulrich Boser is the author of The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World’s Largest Unsolved Art Theft, which became a national best-seller and has been optioned for film. USA Today called The Gardner Heist “a public service,” and The Wall Street Journal described the book as “captivating.” Boser's writings have appeared in a variety of publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. His work has also been featured on CNN, National Public Radio, and NBC’s Nightly News.
The art stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum during the heist has a combined estimated value of $500 million. The following statement from Anthony Amore, Director of Security, appears on the Gardner Museum website:
“Despite some promising leads in the past, the Gardner theft of 1990 remains unsolved. The Museum, the FBI, and the US Attorney's office are still seeking viable leads that could result in safe return of the art.The Museum is offering a reward of $10 million for information leading directly to the recovery of all 13 works in good condition. A separate reward of $100,000 is being offered for the return of the Napoleonic eagle finial. Anyone with information about the stolen artworks or the investigation should contact the Gardner Museum directly. Confidentiality and anonymity is guaranteed.”
