6:30-8 pm. Dr. Jennifer Mass, a chemist and art conservator, presents the Marianne Smith Memorial Lecture focusing on the interconnections between art and science. In her talk, "The Chemist and the Masterpiece: Using Science to Save Works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Edvard Munch," Mass will describe the results of both art historical and scientific analyses of Pablo Picasso's painting The Blue Room, 1901, and address one of the main problems facing the world's fine art museums today - the disfigurement of Impressionist and early modernist masterpieces due to more than 100 years of light exposure. A reception with light refreshments begins at 6:30 pm; the lecture begins at 7:00 pm. The talk is free to Bruce Museum members, $15 non-members, and reservations are required.
