Have you heard about The Color Factory? It’s a new pop-up exhibit in San Francisco that runs through the month of August (and I just heard it sold out! But word is they’re now extending its run into September…). You guys, you have no idea how bummed I am to be missing this. If only I timed my trip to align with getting a chance to explore this hopped up color haven. Oh does San Francisco know how to inspire. Sigh.
This from their site, “This two-story interactive exhibition celebrates color and material, featuring work by some of our favorite artists and collaborators: Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte, Geronimo Balloons, Tosha Stimage, Stanton Jones, Andrew Neyer & Andy J. Miller, Carissa Potter, Jessica Hische, Rebecca Wright, Randi Brookman Harris, Leah Rosenberg and Erin Jang.
Lose yourself in 10,000 colored ribbons, sink into a giant yellow ball pit, catch some rainbows, smell colorful memories, and taste a spectrum of treats from our favorite stops in San Francisco. The pinks will delight you, the blues will amaze you, the yellows might make you hungry.”
And from Architectural Digest, “Color Factory is home to 15 site-specific works by artists and creatives, with a mix of local and global talents. “Our goal was that each installation would meet three criteria,” says Ferney. “It would be conceptual, [be] beautiful and photogenic, and be an experience you couldn’t get anywhere else.” Some rooms focus on a single shade, such as Bay Area artist Tosha Stimage’s assemblage of orange objects and British artist Tom Stayte’s violet selfie installation, while others celebrate the full color spectrum. Jang created a variety of rainbow spaces, from a plaid mural to the striped reception room.”
San Francisco friends, please go and gush about it to me, so I can pretend I was there too. Yes?
