Amethyst, a pop up virtual exhibition featuring artwork inspired by the color purple. This exhibition will examine the color’s global similarities, its impact on society, and unique meanings across cultures. The color purple is often associated with high society as well as popular culture. Deep purple conjures thoughts of royalty. Lilac is connected to springtime and youth. While ultraviolet reminds us of psychedelia. Did you know purple is considered to have beneficial healing qualities? In fact, Leonardo da Vinci preferred to meditate in a lavender or purple-colored light.
This exhibition is part of a series of curated experiences with a mission to push artists in their practice with the challenge to create works in one color. See past color exhibitions, Yell Oh and Blueish.
