Have you ever wondered why a certain color may make you feel a certain way? Or perhaps you’d like to know the significance behind colors, and their connection to both the natural world and society at large. If that’s the case, this all-new temporary exhibition at the Fernbank Museum is the perfect outing to take before it comes to an end.
The Nature of Color will take you on a vivid journey through the rainbow, exploring the science behind every color you can imagine. Learn how color conveys information and helps us make sense of the world, in both human and natural environments.
This hands-on experience analyzes how colors make us feel, how they are perceived across cultures from around the world, as well as how plants and animals use color to help them survive and reproduce.
The exhibit features a color-changing room, art displays, art creation, global fashion, plus so much more.
Featured artwork includes an installation of portraits by Brazilian photographer Angélica Dass, as well as a gorgeous red chiffon and organza gown created specially for this exhibit by American fashion designer, Brandon Maxwell, who’s worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama, Viola Davies, and beyond!
The Nature of Color is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York. It will be at the Fernbank Museum in Atlanta until May 7, 2023. For more information, click here to visit Fernbank’s website.
