Eric Doehne, Ph.D., a conservation scientist specializing in the intersection of art and science, heritage and legacy, presents the last in his art lecture series “The Art Detectives: How to Cheat Time, Investigate Art, and Sustain Culture.” Five stories reveal how scientists help us to understand and sustain our art and culture. (Example: lessons learned from the Iceman not only revealed secrets of the Bronze Age but also about the preservation of fragile materials.) A related field trip will follow on April 13.

Doehne teaches, writes and consults about the conservation of cultural heritage, and the role of science in understanding and preserving our history. He served as a staff scientist at the Getty Institute, currently teaches at Scripps College, and consults with The lecture is hosted by Fine Arts Foundation and the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery, funded by the Spencer Endowment.
