A $100 million painting that turned up in New Mexico is going on display this weekend.

In 2017, Willem de Kooning’s stolen “Woman Ochre” painting turned up at an estate sale in Silver City. It was stolen from the University of Arizona’s Museum of Art in the 80s.

The FBI is still trying to figure out who took it. The painting was sent back to the museum for restoration. 

On Sunday, the museum will hold a viewing party before sending the painting off for conservation.
