At the end of last semester, DePauw had Jennifer Mass (my old lab mate from my undergraduate days at F&M), a Senior Scientist from the Winterthur Museum over to give a seminar and it was fabulous.  It just so happened we were talking about semiconductors in class and the photochemistry of the cadmium pigments in her art talk tied right in!   Lots of super cool instrumentation too.  I think we got a couple of the art majors taking chemistry classes and considering careers in art conservation as well!
