Color Factory in San Francisco: San Francisco is filled with great museums, but this two-story interactive exhibition is only here for the month of August. The Color Factory has exhibitions that celebrate color and material, featuring work by some of their favorite artists and collaborators: Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte, Geronimo Balloons, Tosha Stimage, Carissa Potter, Jessica Hische, Erin Jang, and many more talented artists. A large collective of artists are showcasing the collaboration here at the Color Factory in San Francisco where you can lose yourself in 10,000 colored ribbons, sink into a giant yellow ball pit, admire a 30-foot plaid mural, smell colorful memories, and taste a spectrum of treats from their favorite spots in San Francisco. All the colors will delight you in every way possible. The Color Factory will last until August 31 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. You must get a ticket in order to get into the museum, so grab a ticket! You can take the Caltrain to 4th and King Station, ride SFMTA 30 to Stockton Street & Sutter Street, and a quick walk towards the Color Factory.
