Home to an extensive collection of research objects, the Color Lab is a prime location for investigating color in art and design. Its reference library helps students and faculty place color in context, while specialized equipment supports creative experimentation.

Exploring color in depth

The Color Lab is a center for research and exploration. In it makers explore the history, material dimensions, scientific properties and cultural significance of color as central to creative practice.

The lab houses several resources for inspiring in-depth inquiry. These include hundreds of common and rare dry pigments and textile dyes, a library of reference materials, and laboratory glassware for color mixing. This also makes the Color Lab a hub for teaching and studio learning across disciplines.
