Robert Wittman Inc. is offering a five
day seminar to the public that will focus on the practical application
of investigative techniques to recover stolen art and cultural
property. This seminar is not an art history or appreciation course; it
focuses on real industry career opportunities in the fields of national
and international investigation, art law, insurance, appraisal,
museum security, conservation and art financial services. The
emphasis is on practical application in careers in the industry, no
professors… just professionals.
The course will feature more than 20 hours of instruction spread across five days in downtown Philadelphia. Our instructors are world-renowned in their fields, having won numerous national and international awards. Together they have served for more than half a century on the front lines of art security, protection and recovery.
Participants will be staying at the luxurious Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown Hotel on Juniper Street and the seminar will be conducted at Philadelphia’s exclusive Pyramid Club featuring expansive vistas of the city and gourmet fare. Dates for the course are June 15 - 19, 2015. Deadline for application submission, including a non-refundable $500 application fee, is due no later than April 15, 2015. The application fee will be applied to the all-inclusive course cost with the remaining balance of $2,400 due by May 1, 2015. Participants will receive individual attention and training. Class size is very limited, and applications will be considered in the order they are submitted.
