Lighting for Art - or - How does Bill Gates light his collection?
Doreen Le May Madden, Lux Lighting Design
Art can be the desired accent or focal point in a space, and proper lighting can enhance its impact, providing visual stimulation to pique the interest of the viewer. The goal of quality lighting design is to draw attention to the art in a way that is appropriate both for the piece and for its environment. Discover fascinating information on the latest technologies for lighting art that offer both aesthetic and preservation values. Ambient lighting in rooms where art is shown will also be addressed. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
Saturday, November 12 - 5:30pm - Panel Discussion and Reception
Crossing Borders: Art in an International Context

What are some of the current trends affecting art in the global marketplace? What obstacles do foreign artists face in finding a place for their work in the United States? Which countries are being increasingly recognized for their contributions to the world of fine art?
