Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, 25 years later

Isabella Stewart Gardner MuseumIn the early morning hours of March 18, 1990, a pair of thieves disguised as Boston police officers entered the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and roamed the Museum’s galleries, stealing thirteen works of art. To revisit this unfortunate anniversary, the Gardner Museum has teamed up with the Google Art Project to create Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum: Thirteen Works that explains and explores the effects the theft had, and continues to have, on the Museum. Make sure to view the slideshow full screen and browse among images of the stolen objects and accompanying documentation.

HistoricPlacesLA is published through Arches, a open-source geospatial software system for cultural heritage inventory and management. The software allows searches for specific buildings or browsing by themes and neighborhoods. The inventory itself is still in progress and community residents and organizations are encouraged to contribute information.
