Judith Gaines: How to Commit Art Crime (on Paper)
In 2020, Interpol’s 72-member countries seized 854,742 cultural objects: paintings, sculptures, archaeological artifacts, library materials, and numismatic items. UNESCO estimates the illegal cultural theft industry worth $10 billion annually. So it’s no wonder authors and filmmakers are drawn to the allure of the story behind these headlines. But do they get the details right? This workshop dives into the means and motives of art crime. Learn to think like an art thief and as the museum curator trying to prevent theft to create realism on the page for your readers.
Judith Gaines is an award-winning Producer and Director, creating media content for the NHL, the WUSA, and NASCAR Hall of Famers. As the creator of thousands of local, regional, and national advertising campaigns, her projects include working with program directors at the NC Museum of Art, where Wired, the first book in the Jade Weekes series, was inspired. In addition, she completed training in Non-Verbal Communications in Forensics led by a former FBI agent and spy-catcher, Joe Navarro, is a member of Sisters In Crime, the North Carolina Writer’s Network, and is the owner and executive editor of IndieWriterPro.com
