the color factory originally opened in san francisco last year, intended to last for just four weeks. because of its popularity however, the exhibition unexpectedly flourished as a celebration of color and creativity that lasted for another eight sold-out months. the second palette, set to open in new york in august, will encompass 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, 16 mind-blowing installations.

as before, a huge list of local and national creatives have been enlisted to make it happen. ‘inspired by the colors of the city’, installation vary with each one encouraging an awakening when it comes to color. visitors can expect art from illustrator jason polan (every person in new york), an ombre floating balloon room, a luminous dance floow and a room where you can discover your ‘secret color’. beyond the exhibit itself, guests will receive a secret NYC neighborhood map, which directs you to over 20 unique color experiences located throughout downtown manhattan.
