Color plays a major role in pretty much all areas of visual culture—studies have even proved that color has a powerful effect on behavior. If you've ever wondered why a blackboard is green, all the more reason to attend the Color Now! Symposium put on by the Color Association of the United States in New York City this 20-21 September 2007.
A multi-faceted event, the symposium will address global influences, "green" design, branding, architecture and home design. Panelists include Erik L'Heureux of architecture firm Perkins & Will, retailer Ann Ljunberg of Just Scandinavian, Zoa Martinez of ZONA Design, Leni Schwendinger of Light Projects, Richard Weissman of The Design Library and Mark Pollack will discuss his textile designs. Participants will also get to do some indigo dying with Linda Labelle of the Yarn Tree.
