The Museum of Colour, Shape and Style opened in August 2014. Located at 1234 Rainbow Blvd. in Toronto's downtown core, we have established ourselves as Canada's first and foremost archive of all things colourful. Shades and tints abound in our galleries, our colour palette consistently impresses and our monochromatic galleria soothes the senses. See our amazing colour wheel in the rotunda. Our primary and secondary colours are second to none! Visit our Tertiary Garden and relax in our forest of analogous colours and vector shapes.
Let's face it, things are seldom ever black and white, but isn't that the way we like it?
That is why, despite being legally blind, I became involved with The Museum of Colour, Shape and Style, eventually becoming its president.Legally Blind, Not Colour Blind. Dr. Primary, President of The Museum of Colour
The Museum is essentially the result of president Dr. Primary's belief that he could make people more aware of the colours around us. In August 2013, he left his position as the senior photoshop curator at the Institute for Colour and dedicated himself to turning his vision into reality.
