“Color” Walk the Town for a fun and educational Family outing in NYC

We took a trip to the Cooper Hewitt this week where they brought color, science & theory to life in their current exhibitions, Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color and The Manhattan Color Walk! Learn all you need to know about color: from color theory used by artists & designers, right down to the chemistry of colors! Then take a walk on the COLOR WALK to see some 265 different colors that make up Manhattan! You even get a cool guide that reveals every individual color corresponding to a specific siting on the streets of this borough. Click to Learn More!

We are ALL ABOUT COLOR at CCA! Do I foresee an Art Adventures project in our future Fall program -using a favorite color found in our Art Adventurers neighborhood?! Stay Tuned! And be sure to keep being inspired this summer with great art at museums and all around your neighborhood!
