The Art of the Steal—One of the biggest heists of all time comes in the form of the real-life struggle between modern art connoisseurs and the City of Brotherly Love. This documentary explores the story of Dr. Albert C. Barnes who, in 1922, formed the Barnes Institute, which contains more than $25 billion worth of modern art. He established the institute five miles outside of Philadelphia in order to educate the public. Powerful players in the city now want to bring the art to the capital, against Barnes' will.
