The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will host a free lecture on famous art heists in history. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, August 8 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
This class will investigate some of the most infamous art heists of the past three centuries, from Napoleon’s and Lord Elgin’s looting in Egypt, Greece and Italy to the 1911 theft of Mona Lisa from the Louvre and the still-unsolved burglary of Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
The lecture will be conducted by Carol Jonson, an instructor with The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University since 1996. She has also served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception. Ms. Jonson earned a Bachelor and Master’s degree in English Literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, and did post-graduate work in Medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Detroit. In 1995, she retired from a career in health care communications and marketing. Carol is currently a consultant and freelance writer. Ms. Jonson teaches part-time as an adjunct faculty member at Barry University, and at Davenport University in Detroit.
