EVENT
Film Screening: Stout Hearted: George Stout and the Guardians of Art
November 11, 2021 | 6:30pm - 7:30pm

LOCATION: Figge Art Museum

 

Join us for an in person film screening in the FIgge’s John Deere Auditorium for the film: Stout Hearted: George Stout and the Guardians of Art. This film tells the story of George L. Stout, an art student from Winterset, Iowa, who became the leader of the Monuments Men during World War II. This group, a military special forces unit, was assigned the mission of retrieving stolen art from the Nazis. The film also explores Stout's pioneering efforts in the areas of art conservation, which elevated this discipline into the world of modern science. Many of his innovations are used today to preserve masterworks from deterioration and extinction. Today, the U.S. Committee of the Blue Shield continues the work of Stout L. Stout and The Monuments Men by protecting cultural heritage globally. Q & A and discussion to follow with filmmakers Kevin J. Kelley and Marie Wilkes. This is the inaugural free public event organized by the Quad Cities' newest non-profit, Truth First Film Alliance, Inc.

No registration required, but seating is limited and on a first-come basis. FREE!
