SAM Free Art Movie: Beltracchi

Spartanburg Art Museum presents the film Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery April 26 at 7 p.m. The film is a mesmerizing, thought-provoking yet surprisingly amusing documentary on the life and times of Wolfgang Beltracchi, who tricked the international art world for nearly 40 years by forging and selling paintings of early 20th-century masters. Beltracchi is a larger-than-life personality who was responsible for the biggest art forgery scandal of the postwar era. This family-friendly event features popcorn and a cash bar. Free; suggested donation of $3.
