$50,000 worth of art stolen from Montreal galleryStreet Art // Sunday, 24 Nov 2013
A recently opened gallery in Montreal (as recent as June) fell victim to a tactile art heist that is estimated to be worth up to $50,000 in losses. Sometime between November 2nd and November 4th, Station 16 was broken into where thieves took a number of painting, prints and computers. They believe the robbery to be planned as particular works were chosen off the wall by artists such as Labrona, Kevin Ledo, Scaner, Zek One, Whatisadamand Antoine Tavaglione. Fortunately, the works were insured and artists will be compensated, although they are still hoping for the recovery of the stolen art.
