Member Noontime Talk: She Blinded Me With Science

Art and science are often seen as diametrically opposed endeavors, but they are linked through conservation science, a field that applies scientific approaches to understanding how cultural heritage objects were made. From finding fakes to busting myths conservation scientists reveal the complex stories behind the objects displayed on the museum’s walls.

In this talk, Cory Rogge, Director of Conservation, will share some of her favorite tales from the art/science interface, the secrets that a closer look reveals, and why this matters!

Held twice a month on Fridays for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to membership@menil.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
