Go to thepear.org.

• Talk: 'The Science of Painting'

Stanford professors Curtis W. Frank of chemical engineering and Michael F. Marmor of opthamology will give a free 7 p.m. talk tonight (Nov. 4) on the ways that science and art meet. The event is at the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University. The talk's website states that Frank "will discuss the painting as a physical object in which the longevity of the pigments, binders, varnishes and supports may be understood using principles of chemistry and materials science," while Marmor will explore "the nature of vision and color perception relative to how artists work, and to artists with eye disease."
