“I am reaching out to you all as 45 pieces of Dad’s original artwork was stolen from our family this morning. I cannot go into detail as the police and authorities have been notified.

I am asking to please contact me if you hear or see anything for sale. I cannot post photos of everything that has been taken, but I am posting some

Thank you so very much from the Buscema family.”
