NU/ACCESS Seminar Series in Conservation Science

"Deconstructing and reconstructing paintings: advances in the
    scientific imaging and analysis of painted surfaces"
The Millennium Park Room
The Art Institute of Chicago

"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), 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 nu-access<-a t->northwestern< . >edu Friday, January 24, 2014.
For more information, you may call 847-491-3606.
