Dear Art Educators,

For those who bring in current events....and Art/Science connections.

Paints' Mysteries Challenge Protectors of Modern Art
At the Getty Institute, conservators work to preserve art constructed
out of an ever-expanding array of synthetic products.

"But while conservators have inherited generations' worth of knowledge
about oil paints, they know comparatively little about synthetics and
how to protect the masterpieces created by using them, many of which
are rapidly approaching the half-century mark."
