San Diego-based artist Patricia Patterson's project for inSITE94 showcased her career-long engagement with color on a monumental city-block-scale. Working directly with the exterior of the entire Children's Museum of San Diego, Patterson selected a color pallet that would transform every surface of the Museum. Titled "union market island front," according to the four city streets surrounding the footprint of the museum, the block came alive through the colors chosen by the artist.
The exterior transformation of the Museum was part of larger effort to establish a lasting identity for the institution and as an extension thereof. Patterson collaborated simultaneously with graphic designer Leah Roschke in designing the logo that would likewise come to represent the Museum. --inSITE94
