Activate your senses in this calming and immersive art exhibit!

ARTECHOUSE in Southwest Washington, D.C., is constantly surprising us with new and immersive exhibits! In the summer, they featured the city’s iconic cherry blossoms. Now, ARTECHOUSE will launch their latest exhibit for fall and winter, called “Crystalline,” inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year 2020—Classic Blue

The “Crystalline” exhibit focuses on the relationship between crystals and the earth through a whimsical blue-colored castle. The three rooms utilize Pantone’s Classic Blue to invoke different feelings through sight and sound and offers a quiet place to reflect on your thoughts and surroundings. 

“2020 ended up bringing changes no one expected, making the hue of Classic Blue, and the qualities it represents, more relatable now than ever before. We couldn’t think of a more timeless and timely theme to end the year and launch a new chapter of experiences,” said Sandro Keserelidze, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of ARTECHOUSE.
