Art heists are not new… The ones that get the most attention are the ones where millions of dollars worth of art is lost. Check out this article from Artinfo that highlights the top 5 art crimes of 2008. What does seem to be new though, is this disturbing trend of art being jacked from galleries that WE frequent and of less “expensive” art.
