There will be a screening of the film “Art and Craft,” a documentary that follows Mark Landis – one of the most prolific art forgers in U.S. history – at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24 in the Sanford Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library. This event is free and open to the public.
“Art and Craft” offers an account of Landis, who is exposed as a forger and must confront the legacy of his 30-year career. The New York Times calls the film “perversely satisfying” and the Los Angeles Times declares the film is “spectacular” and “an engrossing cat-and-mouse story.”
Following the screening, there will be a post-film discussion led by Assistant Professor of Psychology Daniel Graham and Professor of Art and Architecture Nick Ruth.
The film screening is sponsored by the Psychology Department, the Art and Architecture Department and the Office of the Provost.
