Color Factory | Minted Bold

Color Factory!

I know you’ve probably read at least 3 blogs and seen 100’s of photos of Color Factory, but I just went this weekend and I want to share my experience with you!

I, like many people, didn’t try to buy tickets to Color Factory until the hype had hit. The only tickets I was able to buy were two singe tickets each for a different time slot, one for 11:30 am, the other for Noon. Ugh. I went with my friend and thought one of us would have to do a bit of waiting until the other could enter, but luckily the workers were really cool and let us both in at the same time! We showed up at 11:45 am which was perfect cause it seemed like we were there when no one else was. I’m not sure how many people have tickets for each time slot, but I liked the feeling that we had the whole place to just us and a handful of others.

I follow a lot of bloggers that live this kooky, colorful life and it’s so pretty and fun, but just not for me. I generally like more muted, pastel and mauve colors, but it was definitely a blast to experience such a bright and colorful world for an hour.

The ribbon installation was one of my favorite exhibits. Not only is it pretty, but it was so much fun to walk through. It felt like how I imagine walking through a dense forest would feel – it was dark and the ribbons muffled everyone’s voices making them seem farther away than they were.

My other favorite room was the confetti room! I mean, how can you not love a room full of confetti? I’m pretty sure I could have spent an hour in that room tossing confetti in the air and taking fun pictures.

Once you are down with the Color Factory there is still more to explore! You get a map of additional exhibits and things to do around San Francisco specifically set up for Color Factory. We tried to do a few of them, but unfortunately many of the ones we tried were closed on Sundays (the day we went). The one I was really excited to see was a mural in China Town (Above). Unfortunately, in any big city, you’re going to get graffiti, and someone tagged the mural 😦 The colorful steps were still intact, but it was really disheartening to see someone ruin the artists work.

Overall it was great experience and I encourage you to go if you can snag tickets! If you have gone, what was your favorite exhibit? Let me know with a comment!
