🎨Introducing our Color Palette of the Month project, Yvonne Montoya’s “Stories From Home” !

Project Title: “Stories From Home”⁠

The color palettes for “Stories from Home” were co-created by the project’s artistic director, costume designers, digital animator, and lighting designer in a collaborative creative process.
