About Color Factory:

Color Factory is a collaborative interactive exhibit that debuted in San Francisco in August 2017. What was intended as a month-long run unexpectedly flourished as a celebration of color and creativity that lasted for another eight sold-out months. We have since opened our flagship in New York City in August 2018, where we’ve seen consistently sold-out crowds. In 20,000 square feet, we feature brand-new participatory installations of colors we’ve collected around the city— hues that invite curiosity, discovery and play.

In October 2019, we opened in Houston, Texas. Some of our favorite artists, creatives, designers and makers have teamed up with us to tell their unique color stories and engage all of the senses in unexpected ways.

Color Factory provides a unique experience carefully designed to be enjoyed by all ages. Through guided activities, interactive installations, and special treats and surprises we hope to connect our guests to the colorful moments within our communities and in their own daily lives.
