The Seattle Art Museum and Columbia Pictures hosts an advanced screening of The Monuments Men, paired with unique perspectives on the film from SAM’s Kim Rorschach (Illsley Ball Nordstrom Director and CEO), Chiyo Ishikawa (Susan Brotman Deputy Director for Art and Curator of European Painting and Sculpture), Bernel Goldberg (Counsel) and Ford W. Bell (President of the American Alliance of Museums). Based on the true story, The Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on seven museum directors, artists, architects, curators, and art historians who went to the front lines of WWII to rescue the world’s artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their rightful owners.
Following the screening, the panel will provide brief insight into SAM’s connections to the film and the roles museums play in investigating Nazi-looted art.
The Monuments Men has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for the following reasons: some images of war and historical smoking.
