Think Willy Wonka's for color enthusiasts . . . this is The Color Factory,
a 13,000-square-foot pop-up experience in the heart of San Francisco. Housed in an old office building, this two-story interactive exhibition celebrates color in a big and bold way!
Originally opened in August, the exhibit sold out right away. They've extended the run and it's currently sold out. Just goes to show, I'm not the only one who loves color!!
A good friend of mine who lives in San Francisco was able to score four tickets for 10 a.m. last Thursday. We were first in line and for two hours we totally geeked out over color. It was a blast and a completely immersive color experience!
Throughout the exhibit we were encouraged to take photos and selfies - so here goes! Buckle up for a colorful ride through the magical rooms of The Color Factory!
First in line . . . !
Our crew of "chic color nerds!"
Scratch and sniff wall - yep!
The scents in the olfactory exhibit were crazy realistic. My fav!
Then the orange room!
Followed by the fabulous blue Balloon Bath.
A fan of all things disco, I especially loved the next room!
The room housing a giant Light Bright was really fun too!
The green room invites guests to color on the walls with gigantic pens! Yes, they were heavy!
Always a fan of colorful ribbon and all things Swedish, I especially loved this amazing ribbon installation designed by Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren that includes over 10,000 ribbons hanging from the ceiling. Fun fact: Jacob has worn a different striped shirt every day for the last 17 years! He has a book about it!
Who doesn't love confetti?! We got to play around in a room full of it!
Next up: Yellow!
We even got yellow soft serve! Yummmy!
The fun continues with pink!
Almost done - one last picture in front of the colorful elevator!
And, finally, because we love color so much, we brought our favorite color book along with us: Leatrice Eiseman's The Complete Color Harmony: Pantone Edition!
