Color Factory Exhibit Coming to Willis Tower’s Catalog in 2022

Color Factory, an interactive museum focused on color, is coming to Chicago. The museum’s largest exhibit to date will be housed in a 25,000-square-foot-plus space in Catalog at Willis Tower, EQ Office’s  new curated dining, entertainment, and community experience.

The Willis Tower Color Factory exhibit will feature brand new installations from local artists and favorite rooms from other locations. It will join existing Tower exhibits, including Jacob Hashimoto’s “In the Heart of this Infinite Particle of Galactic Dust” and Olafur Eliasson’s “Atmospheric Wave Wall.”

“Willis Tower is in the final stages of its historic transformation, and the addition of Color Factory will further celebrate Catalog as the ultimate Chicago destination for locals and tourists alike,” said David Moore, portfolio director at EQ Office. He added that the museum would draw visitors from across the globe and represents “the perfect complement to this new neighborhood that we’ve built.”
