Chandler Burr will give a presentation on The Art History Of Scent: 1889 - 2011 as part of the Chicago Humanities Festival:
Burr uses his rich historical, cultural, scientific, and economic knowledge of scent to give the readers of his “Scent Notes” column nuanced, witty insights that go far beyond the perfume counter. Burr will bring Festival audiences an interactive experience of the art history of scent via the medium’s greatest artistic works.
The event will be held at the Chicago History Museum's Rubloff Auditorium on Sunday, 14 November from 11:30 - 12:30 pm. Admission is $5; free for students and teachers. For more information, see the Chicago Humanities Festival website.
