October is All About Color

October is All About Color

October has always been our favorite month - birthdays, Halloween, changing temperatures and changing colors. It's only fitting, then, that our biggest, best, and most colorful contest is happening now. Today we begin accepting entries for our Fall Colors Contest. If you need a little inspiration to motivate you to share your colorful abode with us, check out the 2005 entries here. October is also Chicago Artists Month, so we're looking to fill our own color lust with as much art as possible... Over the weekend we hit the two big shots first, The Art Institute (for So the Story Goes photography exhibition) and the MCA's Massive Change, both of which very differently address how our private and public worlds are "designed" - whether through photographic documentation or as design economies that shape (through science, technology, and images) the ways we function in the modern world. By looking this month at the ways you've designed (and colored) your homes, we will get an important glimpse at the exchange between a healthy, efficient home and the successful creation of "massive change" in the greater scheme of things. After all, AT is all about "changing the world, one apartment at a time." We are also gearing up for an evening about color at CB2 this Thursday; don't forget to rsvp if you plan on attending. We're looking forward to seeing you! (Images via The Art Institute of Chicago)
