“We wanted to broaden the appeal of the Art Center,” commented Rosemary Wick, Board President, “and we felt that this Art Flicks program would help create a more well-rounded appeal for an already robust art, class and exhibit schedule. It is a great way to bring educational, historical and entertaining films to Marco that people would be interested in seeing and talking about.”
The 2014 theme is a very timely one, given the recent discovery in a Munich, Germany, apartment of $1.3 billion worth of stolen art. The first film, Rape of Europa, is an award-winning documentary on the systematic looting of Jewish art by the Nazis leading up to and during WWII.
The Marco Island Center is open Monday through Friday, 9 to 4PM, and selected weekends during season.
