Color choice is key in gallery design

Finally back from my vacation (sigh) and sifting through the mountains of email in my inbox, I came across the latest electronic issue of Sherwin-Williams' Stir magazine. In it there is a nice article about the importance of wall color in gallery spaces. Stir is a magazine aimed mainly at interior designers, but this article presents the issue of color choice from a museum's perspective, emphasizing the design process that takes place before gallery installations and the impact paint colors have on the visitors and the artwork.

Check out this article for important questions to ask in planning your next exhibit installation and key concepts to keep in mind when selecting a color palette.
