“What does Blue mean?” Panel Discussion at the Getty¬†

If you’re in LA this week be sure to check out the Panel Discussion on “What Does Blue Mean?” At the GETTY CENTER, Thursday, June 8, 2017, at 7 pm, Harold M. Williams Auditorium. 

Free | Advance ticket required. 

Panelists include Prof Mas Subramanian, inventor of YInMnBlue, authors Catherine McKinley and Carol Mavor, and actor/comedian/singer Garrett Morris. ‘Blue describes emotional states, musical and literary genres, and moral codes. And yet, historically, humans have found the color itself notably difficult to pin down. How did blue come to occupy its singular scientific and cultural significance? What relationships exist between the history of blue pigments and the wealth of meanings the term conveys today?’ Come explore the science and sentiment of the color Blue.
