Chemistry of Art

The ACS Georgia Local Section, in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, is excited to host a Chemistry of Art Event. The event will feature conversations around the paints, dyes, and hues  used in the collection of paintings by artist Andre’ Henderson in his series The Journey & Clotilda: The Final Journey. Henderson’s artistic inspiration aligns with the documentary featuring The Clotilda and Descendants of her 110 African human cargo. The Clotilda was the last known U.S. slave ship to bring captives from Africa to the United States. Please join us as we celebrate Andre Henderson at the intersection of Chemistry and Art. Our very own color chemist, Dr. Jason Lye, will be on-hand at the event to share more about the chemistry of the colors used in the works, as well as highlighting those historically used in Africa during the time period illustrated in the works.
