New Windsor, NY, February 28, 2001 – GretagMacbeth, the leading provider of color management solutions, has launched its Color and Appearance Seminar program, a science workshop series that will stop in 8 locations across North America. The series of workshops includes basic and advanced level courses that combine lectures, demonstrations, and discussions to help attendees learn how to evaluate, measure, and communicate color.
