NEW HAVEN--As WWII ravaged the landscape and people of Europe, many cultural and artistic icons were often destroyed, or stolen. In the wake of these losses, a team of artists and historians were brought together to recover these items.

You've seen the movie, but on this week's Hidden History by photojournalist Mike Townsend hear about local artist Deane Keller, who was a real monuments man, and his ties to Connecticut.

The Deane Keller exhibit is on display at the New Haven Museum until June 30. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10-5 and Saturday from 12-5. The museum is also open--and free!--on the first Sunday of every month.

Admission for adults is $4, $3 for seniors, $2 for students, and free for kids under 12.
