SAFE Beacon Award Lecture and Reception

  • 29 Oct 2010
  • 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • New York, New York

The SAFE Beacon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in raising public awareness about our endangered cultural heritage and the devastating consequences of the illicit antiquities trade, which fuels the looting of ancient sites and destroys our ultimate non-renewable resource: the intact evidence of our undiscovered past.

This year, SAFE will honor four exceptional men who use their law enforcement and legal expertise to passionately combat the illicit antiquities trade and fight to protect cultural heritage. They confront art thieves in their daily work as an attorney, a Federal Prosecutor, a Special Agent of Homeland Security, and a retired FBI agent working independently to protect antiquities.

The evening will begin with Attorney Robert E. Goldman, Federal Prosecutor David Hall, Special Agent James E. McAndrew, and retired FBI agent Robert K. Wittman, who are unsung heroes in the battle to save our history, receiving this year’s 2010 SAFE Beacon Awards. The four recipients will then share their insights by participating in a panel and engaging discussion. The evening will conclude with a reception, where you can meet the honorees and engage in lively discussions with other concerned people.

After the panel, Robert Wittman will sign copies of his bestselling memoir, Priceless. Copies will be available for purchase.

The 2010 SAFE Beacon Awards Lecture and Reception is co-sponsored by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center.
