BROWARD CENTER: ART HEIST EXPERIENCE
Through April 4th
Put your NCIS, CSI and Law & Order skills to use and walk off the quarantine poundage to solve a ripped-from-the-walls, real-life master robbery of thirteen works of art, valued at half a billion dollars. Based on a true story of the world's biggest art caper, Art Heist is a true crime walking show where socially distanced groups move through five walkable locations to gather clues. Interact with a wild group of wily career criminals, slimy con men, rumpled art recovery specialists, a possible inside man, a gentle psychopath, and the larger-than-life but definitely real self-proclaimed "Greatest Art Thief of All Time."
