The Nature of Color - Natural History Museum of Utah

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 08/14/2022
Color makes the world feel vibrant and alive. But that’s not all. Color helps us make sense of the world. It contains vast amounts of information—about the natural world, and the human world. Come and explore the world of color! Experiment with light in the white room and see what colors you can create and step into the yellow room to explore how colors make you feel. In the green room, discover why some animals use eye-catching colors while others aim to blend into the background. Find out about how colors can create shared identity and the many uses of red throughout human history, from cave art to college sports, in the red room. Then go to the blue room to learn how objects can produce color in many different ways, depending on how they interact with light, and how people have searched for pigments and dyes to make their lives more colorful. This immersive exhibit explores the science and meaning of the colors that make our world so vibrant and alive. Start planning for your weekend visit to the Museum!
