    This event is over! Please check the 2020 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    The Marriage of Art and Science

    The Marriage of Art and Science will provide a behind the scenes tour of an art conservation laboratory. Collectors and art enthusiasts are welcome to visit The Center?s facilities for a private educational tour led by CEO Heather Becker. This would offer an exciting opportunity to see the laboratory in action, meet conservators in different specialties, view and discuss projects currently in progress, and learn about conservation processes, and methods of archival framing. Tour highlights would include the chance to examine a painting using Ultraviolet light and microscopic analysis, and a demonstration of water gilding techniques. Visitors will experience a field which combines art and science, ultimately expanding and enhancing the collectors? knowledge of art and preservation.
