Museum exhibits add color to visit

By Zenaida Serrano Espanol

The whole family can discover hidden surprises with an ultraviolet spotlight, or experience how colors affect our moods at the Bishop Museum exhibition "Color Play: Exploring the Art, Science and Culture of Color," from Sept. 15 through Feb. 3 in the museum's Castle Memorial Building.

Among the highlights of the exhibit is a Color Playhouse, which includes a room with lights that transform objects with a flip of a switch, as well as a room where visitors can see a rainbow reflected on the ceiling. Other features include a Color Lab, where adults and keiki can participate in hands-on activities at color stations, each of which brings to life an aspect of color, such as shading, camouflage, harmony and classification.

The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibit is free with paid museum admission. For more information, call 848-4160.
