Faculty Member Beate Fricke Participates in Google Art Talk: The Monuments Men



Google Art Talk: The Monuments Men

History of Art Department faculty member Beate Fricke participated in a Google Art Talk  on the true stories of the Monuments Men hosted by the Legion of Honor and the Google Art Project. The Google Art Talk is in celebration of the Sony Pictures release The Monuments Men. The film, directed by George Clooney,  is about an elite group of men and women—museum directors, art historians, conservators, educators, and others— who volunteered during World War II to help save Europe’s cultural heritage from Nazi looting and destruction.

The talk was broadcast on February 7th, and can now be viewed online on the Google hangout site.
