Help solve the biggest art heist in history during an interactive experience – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

You know how angry you feel when someone steals your pen? Well, this is way worse. Back in the ’90s, a half billion dollars was stolen in a Boston art heist, and still no one behind the slammer! You’d think art thieves could frame someone. Anyway, now you can help solve the crime in a new interactive experience.

It’s the biggest art heist in history!

Ernesto Gonzalez, Art Heist Experience: “These guys spent 81 minutes in the museum carefully picking out 13 pieces of art.”

In 1990, two thieves walked out of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston with a half billion dollars worth of art!

Ernesto Gonzalez: “And they haven’t been able to solve it at all.”

But now through April 4 at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami and Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, you can try to, finally, close the case in a new Art Heist Experience.

Ernesto Gonzalez: “Come in. The experts guide you through a tour.”

Ernesto Gonzalez: “Why don’t we get started on our investigation this evening. Follow me.”

Play detective and walk through five scenes to gather clues and ask all the right questions.

Performer: “Has anyone else here ever seen a great work or art in person?”

Performer: “Yes! Up on the stairs!”

Alex Miranda: “Um, where’s the restroom?”

Performer: “It’s just around the corner.”

Meet career criminals and a possible inside man.

Ernesto Gonzalez: “It’s your job as the audience member to interact with these suspects and grill them, interrogate them, ask them questions.”

Good point…

Ernesto Gonzalez: “The goal is to try to figure out who you think is the most likely to have been involved in the heist.”

Performer: “All right, so who’s got a question? Anybody? You!”

Guest: “Yeah! So you said you wrote the playbook on how to steal a Rembrandt. Tell us about it.”

At the end, the group votes on which character is the most guilty, but this could help you in real life.

Ernesto Gonzalez: “The real Gardner museum is giving out a $10 million reward to anyone who gives information that leads to the recovery of any of the art pieces.”

Well, with that kind of incentive, i made a new friend.

Alex Miranda: “I know you know.”

Performer: “I don’t know anything about the Gardner heist.”

Alex Miranda: “Yeah, well I know about a $10 bill that says otherwise.”

Performer: “All right, maybe I know a little something.”
