Celebrating Colour with the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

December 29th, 2022

Brewers were thrilled to be able to support the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology as a part of Cambridge University. 60L of Albany paint was donated to the museum for their latest exhibition: COLOUR: Art, Science & Power.

The displays harness the allure and power of colour to inspire reflection and creativity. Albany Durable Matt and Albany Vinyl Matt were donated to the exhibition in navy and grey. ‘Lauren’s Jubilee’ and colour matched grey were two bespoke colours created to match specific fabric colours within the exhibition.

The exhibition integrates insights from the arts, humanities and the sciences, bringing together extraordinary objects and artworks from different times and places. COLOUR showcases remarkable and diverse collections from across the University of Cambridge museums, libraries and colleges.

Underlying the exhibition is a focus on materiality and the different ways that people use colour to make sense of the world around them. Colour influences our emotions, activities and relations with others. Colour has the power to enchant and transform both people and things.

The exhibition is running until the 9th of April 2023. Find out more information here: https://maa.cam.ac.uk/whats_on/exhibitions/colour-art-science-and-power
