    The paint brand Glidden is brightening up Epcot with its new exhibit, Colortopia in Innoventions. The exhibit is designed to both entertain and inform guests about the power of color.

    Colortopia allows guests to walk through three unique areas and encounter exciting interactions that bring to life color theory, the psychology of color and the perception of color, all while engaging guests in fun and surprising hands-on activities. The exhibit demonstrates that color is not only a visual treat, but also a dynamic and emotional experience. A visit to the highly interactive, more than 3,700-square-foot Colortopia exhibit is expected to last about 30 minutes.

    “Combining Glidden paint’s rich tradition of innovation and color inspiration with the creative power of Walt Disney Imagineering was a perfect collaboration to create a one-of-a-kind experience that engages visitors with color in ways they never have before,” said Max Wetzel, chief marketing officer and general manager of home centers, PPG Architectural Coatings, U.S. and Canada, makers of Glidden paint. “With the Glidden brand, we know the important role color plays when selecting paint for your home. Color also has a powerful role in our everyday lives, and it is truly brought to life in the Colortopia exhibit.”

    There are three zones in Colortopia:

    The Power of Color. In this specially designed standing theater, guests will enjoy a short presentation that explores the psychology of color by immersing guests in a full spectrum of colors.

    The Color Lab. Guests can play Color Mix ‘n Match, an interactive game that allows guests to mix red, green and blue to create bold new colors. A second interactive station, Spinning Spectrums, teaches guests about the persistence of vision through painted spinning discs. Here guests can try to guess what color their eyes will perceive once the multi-colored discs start to spin quickly.

    Color Our World. Guests can play with fun color shadows while they wait to receive a magic paint brush, which they can use in the studio to bring the world around them to life with their personal color choices.

    A mobile app and a website allow visitors to enhance their in-park experience and to bring their Colortopia experience home with them. Guests can play an interactive color-matching game that responds to the illuminated walls of the pavilion itself, they can digitally paint their own home spaces and décor using color palettes inspired by Epcot’s World Showcase and more.

    The Colortopia experience extends beyond the exhibit with the Colortopia mobile app and website, allowing guests to bring a world of colorful fun into their own homes.
