Rita Cosby’s Interview with Tod Volpe on Sunday December 3rd, on WABC 77 The Rita Cosby Show, centers on his dynamic fall, rise and redemption story and how the TV series Framed, based on Tod’s life, pulls back the curtain and exposes the burgeoning fraud in the art world.
On May 7 2015, at avant garde NeueHouse, Brian Kerr and Michael Spencer of the art law firm Spencer Kerr LLP, hosted a landmark event bringing leading experts: art consultant Joyce Varvatos, art expert Tod Volpe, science analyst Nica Gutman Rieppi, conservationist Suzanne Siano and legal professor Judith Prowda together to discuss dramatic changes in the art arena. The art market is the second largest unregulated business in the world moving billions of dollars globally as prices soar (300 million for a Gauguin) so are the opportunities for fraud. As leaders in their respective fields, a lively dialogue ensued about ways to access new and more reliable approaches to buying, selling and investing in art.
