The Monuments Men: Heroes at Home and Away

October 10, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Event Navigation

Inspired by a book of the same title, the Monuments Men were the subject and title of a recent Hollywood movie, starring George Clooney. During World War II, a group of museum directors, curators, artists and architects, led by Iowa-born George Stout, helped to protect masterpieces from the Nazis, who stole thousands of works of art from museums, churches and private collectors.

Sponsored in part by a grant from Humanities Iowa.
