Exhibition Preview of 'Saturated'
May 11, 2018 Kara Nichols

I interviewed Kara Nichols about Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color which starts this Friday, May 11 and runs through Jan. 13 at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in NYC. Kara worked on this exhibition for her curatorial capstone at the Parsons/Cooper Hewitt graduate program. Saturated explores various aspects of color and how color theory can be translated into the visual applications of design.

The exhibition was co-curated by Susan Brown, associate curator of textiles and Smithsonian research librarian, Jennifer Bracchi. This exhibition expands on “Color in a New Light,” which was curated by Jennifer and presented by the Smithsonian Libraries at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. from January 2016 to March 2017. Through these nearly 200 objects and books on display in Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color, the show will explore both the complex nature and the beautiful presence that color reveals through design, art and in our everyday lives.
