Get Out! And Walk Through Blue Art In Real Life

Crystalline: Classic Blue at Artechouse
Oct 15 2020 - Jan 3 2021

by Peggy Robin

The highlighted event of this week’s “Get Out!”  feature is an art installation, Crystalline, to celebrate the Pantone Color of the Year 2020: It’s Classic Blue. Yes, it’s been a blue year, in multiple senses of the word. And now you can walk right through it and come out the other side.

It's at Artechouse DC:

Sorry, it’s not free. But it does offer reduced prices for seniors, children, military and first responders. I think you will find it so refreshing to experience a real in-person art walk that you won't balk at the price.

Here's the teaser from Artechouse:


“During these unprecedented times as a society we have found ourselves in a new state of existence. Before 2020 even began, Pantone selected Classic Blue as the color of the year because they saw it as the hue to sustain us during a time of change,” said Sandro Keserelidze, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of ARTECHOUSE. “2020 ended up bringing changes no one expected, making the hue of Classic Blue, and the qualities it represents, more relatable now than ever before. We couldn’t think of a more timeless and timely theme to end the year and launch a new chapter of experiences.”  

More about Crystalline: Classic Blue:

CRYSTALLINE - October 15th - January 3rd 

To wrap up this unprecedented year, we’re transforming our three locations into unique expressions of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2020: Classic Blue. From earth to water to air, each location will present a distinct, elemental experience related to the unique qualities of the color. Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit. The new installations seek to do the same; centering our thoughts and fostering resilience.

Inspired by blue’s dependable qualities, Crystalline in DC explores the color’s connection with earth and crystals through a journey that is both an adventure and a contemplation—an exploration through an illusory, blue-hued castle. Representative of our desire for a stable foundation that often feels out of reach during these turbulent times, this surreal yet familiar place offers guests a refuge from the everyday. Discover creative curiosities in each room as you learn more about your surroundings and yourself. Submerge yourself in the sights, sounds and sensations of Classic Blue.
