    If you're on campus in next week, take a trip to the UA Museum of Art to see Mark Rothko's famous "Green on Blue (Earth-Green and White)," the subject of a special experiment run by senior Ali Khan for OPTI 485/585: Illumination Engineering.

    Technicians work on lighting the Rothko painting

    He and exhibition specialist Nathan Saxton (who has applied to join the OSC undergrad program himself!) have designed a changeable lighting system for the painting that allows viewers to adjust the light's temperature – and then vote on the version they like best. 

    Check out a video on Facebook, and cast your vote in person next Monday through Thursday between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.
