Due to the pandemic, the Museums on the Green is currently closed to the public. However, we have created a dynamic new virtual series of talks with authors and historians (see what’s planned below), and new virtual exhibits featuring items from the archives. You can also read the latest issue of “Untold Tales of Falmouth” and catch up with previously published Tales here. Plus…there’s more to come!
The Museums on the Green is also seeking submissions for its “Covid-19 Archives”. Individuals, businesses and groups are invited to submit journals, essays, poems, photographs, songs, videos and other items that illustrate what life has been like in Falmouth during the 2020 pandemic. Later, we’ll share these stories and artifacts with you–and preserve them for generations to come in our new archives collection. MORE INFO

VIRTUAL TALK: “Goring’s Man in Paris” with Jonathan Petropoulos
May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
GORING’S MAN IN PARIS
The Story of a Nazi Art Plunderer and His World
Bruno Lohse was a charismatic art dealer in Berlin. He was also an SS officer and one of the most notorious art plunderers in history. Hermann Göring appointed him to Hitler’s art looting agency in Paris. There, he helped supervise the systematic theft and distribution of more than 30,000 artworks, taken largely from French Jews. He also helped the Nazi leader amass an invaluable private collection of plundered works—and apparently helped himself to some pieces he admired, too. After his death in 2007, dozens of paintings by Renoir, Monet, Pissarro and others were found secreted in his Zurich bank vault and adorning the walls of his Munich home. Author Jonathan Petropoulos spent nearly a decade interviewing Lohse, “a skilled liar, dissimulator, and schemer” who mixed luxury with larceny. His research also reveals the elaborate network of German, French, and Swiss art dealers who not only fenced goods stolen from museums and Jewish collectors in Nazi-occupied Europe, but also concealed and continued, like Lohse, to trade in some of the loot after 1945.
