This accession consists of 26 film cans (16mm OCN), 17 videos (Beta SP), and 14 audio elements (1/4" original audiotapes) documenting the Lemelson Center New Perspectives Program, "The Colors of Invention: An Exploration of Color, Technology, and Culture." The program examined how the colors of the material world came to be; how the development of colors relates to products and technologies; and how designers, manufacturers, advertisers, and the media use colors to influence people's lives. Presentations were geared to all age levels, following the Lemelson Center's mission to bring together inventors, scholars, educators, and young people to further the knowledge of and support for invention and innovation.
