Over a sip of some sort and in an atmosphere where no science background is needed, hear about some of the science used in analysis and conservation of art and cultural heritage bjects.

After completing a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture at Yale University, Casey Mallinckrodt went on to complete the UCLA Getty Master’s Program in the Conservation of Archeological and Ethnographic Materials. Prior to landing in Richmond in 2015, Casey worked with the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Sante Fe, New Mexico and with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Massachusetts where she held the Samuel H. Kress Fellow in Object Conservation.  Fortunately, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts scooped her up and she now serves as one of the museum’s three object conservators. Obviously an art and culture enthusiast, she’s also an avid runner and enjoys discovering new things in and around RVA.

I don’t drink alcohol, do you ever have any non-pub events?  
Pub is in our name, but sipping on a glass of water or other beverage is completely copacetic. Our focus is more about enjoying the night’s topic and each other, and less about whatever liquids are in hand. Some Science Pub programs are held in restuarants and welcome curious minds 18 and over.

Will there be food? 
Triple Crossing has a yummy, but limited pizza-only menu.
