Closed to the Public
Mark Aronson, painting conservator at the Yale Center for British Art, Louis Kahn’s last building, will discuss the ways in which architecture, light, and the lighting interact with each other, how they influence the way in which paintings age, and how a conservator must negotiate a balance between the scientific understanding of light, the aging of works of art, and the way in which audiences like to see them. Co-sponsored by the Johnson Endowment Fund.
