We are pleased to announce the seminar: “Deconstructing and reconstructing paintings: advances in the scientific imaging and analysis of painted surfaces”, under the auspices of the Northwestern University/Art Institute of Chicago CEnter for Scientific Studies in the Arts (NU-ACCESS), which will take place on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, in the Millennium Park Room, at The Art Institute of Chicago.
This event is part of a continuing seminar series on conservation science, sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation through the Northwestern University/Art Institute of Chicago CEnter for Scientific Studies in the Arts. The goal of these seminars is twofold: to inform art historians, conservators, curators and conservation scientists on the techniques and expertise available in science and engineering for advancing the practices of art history and conservation, and to educate scientists and engineers on the opportunities and unsolved problems in conservation science.
Participation is free, thanks to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center of Northwestern University, but you need to register in order to attend this seminar.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 24, 2014. For more information, you may call (847) 491-3606.
