Catch Color Factory While You Still Can
There are a lot of 'Pop-Up Experiences' taking place in San Francisco lately. One of these experiences is The Color Factory. This two-story interactive exhibition celebrates color and material, featuring work by some of our favorite artists and collaborators: Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte, Geronimo Balloons, Tosha Stimage, Stanton Jones, Andrew Neyer & Andy J. Miller, Carissa Potter, Jessica Hische, Rebecca Wright, Randi Brookman Harris, Leah Rosenberg and Erin Jang.
As soon as you enter to the Color Factory, they give you a card (pictured above) that you can use to get your pictures via email. Basically, before you take a picture with the digital photobooths they have inside, you scan this card and viola! the picture is in your inbox right away.
Right after you take your first picture inside, unless you started taking thousands of them as soon as you enter, the macaroon wheel welcomes you. It is a yummy start I must say. I might have taken more than one macaroon. But you don't know that...
General admissions is $35. I think it is a little bit over-priced, since you don't really get much inside except for a macaroon, and a mini ice-cream. But hold on! You get a lot of 'selfie' opportunity for sure. Ha! But I still think it would have been cheaper. Inside you get to do boomerangs with 10,000 colored ribbons and giant yellow ball pool. You also get to smell colorful memories, and taste a spectrum of treats from our favorite stops in San Francisco. There are rooms that you throw glitters around (those glitters will not leave you alone for couple days), also one of my favorites was the room that had thousands of selfies on the floor. The room had a printer inside, and it would print the picture from instagram that uses a specific hashtag. Not enough details? Well, see it for yourself. Here are some pictures from my visit below. You should definitely check it out yourself too.
The last day that you can visit this pop-up factory, is September 30th, 2017. The last time I checked the tickets were sold out, but I also heard they are making new tickets available frequently. So keep checking. Maybe you get lucky in this last week of exhibition.
Overall, I enjoyed it. San Francisco always have fun stuff, maybe there will be a Halloween themed pop-up museum or horror house (!) too! I'll totally go to that one...
