So... what is color factory?

Color Factory is an experiential art exhibit inspired by the joy of color. Launched in San Francisco in 2017 by a team of artists and creatives, Color Factory creates meaningful and immersive color experiences for all. While the company has since grown and expanded, the core elements remain the same: Color Factory embraces child-like imagination, while expanding boundaries of perception and understanding.

In October 2019, a whole new palette came to Houston in the Upper Kirby neighborhood. In over 20,000 square feet, we feature participatory installations of colors we’ve collected around the city (and space!) - hues that invite curiosity, discovery, and play. Some of our favorite artists, creatives, designers, and makers are teaming up with us to tell their unique color stories and engage all of your senses in unexpected ways.

We hope that the palette and projects offered within Color Factory will connect you to the colorful moments around Houston and in your own daily life.
