Color is woven so tightly into our lives that we rarely stop to question what it is and how it works. Where do the colors in diamonds and rainbows come from? How have some animals benefited by evolving to stand out while others blend in? Why do some colors make us happy while others make us, well, blue? How did pink come to be associated with femininity in Western culture after centuries of being considered suitable for all?
The new exhibition The Nature of Color reveals how color carries information both in nature and across cultures. Discover how color is used in the natural world to help organisms survive and reproduce and how humans use it in various cultures to signal social status, group affiliation, and more. Featuring intricate models, cultural objects, and interactive exhibits that will engage the entire family, this immersive exhibition will offer opportunities to connect with color through experimentation and play, including dancing with color shadows, mixing and splitting different colors of light in a Color Lab, and even creating collaborative artworks.
