Join us at the APS Museum for the fourth and final installment of our “Curious Evenings” lecture series. Bringing the spirit of Charles Willson Peale’s lectures back to the building where they were once held, the series will be educational, engaging, and (like C.W.) a little quirky.

Artist? Chemist? Experimenter? Long before the pre-mixed tube of paint, artists had to navigate the tricky territory of creating color. They had to mix, measure, test, refine—or invent—their materials. Painters such as Rembrandt Peale kept careful notes about their endless experiments with paint and pigments. But where did he get his supplies? What were they really made of? And what on earth is arsenic doing in a painter’s studio? Join us for a lively discussion and hands-on demonstration exploring the science and secrets of color.
