Explore the science of color with this vivid exhibit, The Nature of Color. Learn how color conveys information and helps us make sense of the world in both human and natural environments. Use hands-on interactives to analyze how colors make us feel, how they are perceived across cultures, as well as how plants and animals use color to help them survive and reproduce.
Featured artwork includes an installation of portraits by Brazilian photographer Angélica Dass, whose work highlights the diversity of human skin tones to challenge socially constructed racial categories and celebrate the beauty and diversity of humans from around the world. This exhibition also features a never before seen transparent red chiffon and organza gown created specially for this exhibit by American fashion designer, Brandon Maxwell.
