OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Where art meets science is the focus of the next Omaha Science Café.

The speakers will be Kenneth Bé, who is head of paintings conservation at the Gerald R. Ford Conservation Center, and James Temme, who is director of the radiation science technology division at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Bé will discuss technical examinations used in the art conservation studio and talk about restoration of an 1899 painting, “Pearl of Venice,” by Thomas Moran. The Ford Conservation Center, Joslyn Art Museum and the medical school worked together to produce a high-quality X-ray of the painting to learn more about the artist’s technique and the condition of the painting.

The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on June 3 at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St.
