Art Basel VIP Preview Exhibition & Cocktail Party with Arthur J. Williams Jr.Wednesday 12/5
One of the greatest counterfeiters of modern history Arthur J. Williams Jr. is now a professional artist and will be hosting an exhibition of his work during Miami Art Week at The Setai Hotel on December 5, 2018 from 8 – 11 p.m. Williams is best known for being the counterfeiter who successfully replicated the 1996 $100 bill in the U.S. In the late ‘90s, U.S. Secret Service agents doggedly pursued Williams as he printed what some estimate to have been as much as $10 million dollars in fabricated money before he eventually landed in federal prison for almost 7 years. While incarcerated, he mastered his craft by painting and taking art classes to become an artist. He is the subject of the book The Art of Making Money by Jason Kersten, which is currently being opted for a movie. His work hangs in the homes of celebrities including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Floyd Mayweather and many others. Williams is donating a portion of his sales from his exhibit to After-School All-Stars South Florida.
