Museum expert to share how science helps save art

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Using science to help understand the past — and determine the future — of artwork is the topic of a talk by a Detroit Institute of Arts expert.

The art museum’s director of conservation and special projects will speak Wednesday morning at the Lorenzo Cultural Center in Macomb County’s Clinton Township. Barbara Heller will describe how she and her colleagues use everything from X-ray technology to pigment analysis to figure out the best way treat and store pieces.

Admission is free but registration is required.

The center is part of Macomb Community College and named after former college President Albert Lorenzo.
