The Franc Grum Color Science Learning Center
|In 1983, Franc Grum founded the Munsell Color Science Laboratory. Serving as the lab's first Director and the first R.S. Hunter Professor of Color Science, Appearance, and Technology, Franc was responsible for establishing facilities and initiating color science educational programs. Franc's untimely death in 1985 prevented him from witnessing the continuing results of his vision, determination, and effort that made world-class color science education and research at RIT a reality. As a lasting legacy to Franc's mission, this facility was created in dedication and celebration of his foresight, hard work, and standards of excellence through contributions from the following alumni and friends of MCSL.|
The Franc Grum Color Science Learning Center serves as the primary focus of all teaching within the Munsell Color Science Laboratory. It features state-of-the-art presentation capabilities, as well as an impressive library of color science related texts and journals. The GLC is also used as a formal and informal meeting place, a measurement and research laboratory, and a gallery of Munsell technical and historic artifacts.
