Science Cafe:  Art Authentication & Conservation A $45 garage sale purchase may have made one guy a millionaire 200 times over last week. Some art experts think he may have negatives from famed photographer Ansel Adams but the jury is still out. Authenticating art, and preserving it, is very scientific business. Monday on the Sound of Ideas, it’s a Science Café conversation about art authentication and conservation. From aqueous bathing of fine paper to CAT scans for mummy remains, it’s a CSI Picasso-style show, Monday morning at 9 on 90.3!
