Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year + Art Force

Each year, Pantone releases a “Color of the Year”. This year, Pantone selected two colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity!


Taken from Pantone’s website, “As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

We decided to look around our space and in our database to see if we had any artwork that exhibits these colors…

We definitely feel that soothing feeling that Pantone is talking about while looking at these pieces and we have the feeling that many of these artists were working to create that!
