Leah Rosenberg debuts "Color for the People" with The Blue Hour

By Armando Bellmas

Earlier this month, artist-in-residence Leah Rosenberg began her project Color for the People, a site-specific exploration of color and taste in the first-floor gallery here at McColl Center for Art + Innovation. Each week, she selects a color from Charlotte’s landscape and applies it to the gallery walls and furniture to create an immersive color-field painting and meditative space.

For her first color, which debuted on September 14, 2017, Rosenberg chose The Blue Hour. The inspiration came from McColl Center itself, and one of our alumni artists, John W. Love Jr.
