STOLEN: Stories Of Art Taken, Returned And Reborn In Colorado


History is full of famous art heists. In 1911, the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre. The Scream was stolen, twice, in 1994 and 2004.

Those works were ultimately recovered, but in some other cases, there's more to the story.

In KUNC's four-part series, "Stolen," arts reporter Stacy Nick looks at an almost 100-year-old mystery in Fort Collins, the time a lifted cartoon of a flatulent unicorn made headlines, the repatriation of Native American artifacts and how a vandalized artwork in Loveland ended up bringing people together.

Listen to and read the full series here.

Stacy was KUNC's arts and culture reporter from 2015 to 2021.
