Color Factory in San Francisco
If you haven't heard about the Color Factory yet, you're about to see it all over Instagram.
The Color Factory is a two-story pop up exhibit in San Francisco created by Oh Happy Day celebrating color and material featuring a number of artists. It opened in August and has been extended through September. Here are the highlights of this delightful experience.
First off, the whole photobooth situation is very well-designed. At the beginning, you get a card which you scan at different photo stations throughout the exhibit which is then automatically emailed to you. I honestly thought this process was so seamless and well done, and I hope it is integrated into future exhibits.

Tag your selfies with #tomstayte to print them out in the Color Factory! @tomstaye
For anyone from ArtCenter who is reading this, it reminds me of a few Type 5 installations I've seen.

Dive (well, actually you might get in trouble for jumping in like I did) into a pool of yellow balls featuring illustrations by Carissa of @peopleiveloved.
