On March 1, 2013, director of Preservation and Conservation Richard Kerschner presented our experiences with using LED lighting in exhibition spaces at a one-day symposium held at the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Lunder Conservation Center in Washington, DC. During his case study he shared how we've used LED lighting in the past here, how various departments are involved in choosing the lighting we use, and then Rick talked a bit about the efforts involved in selecting lighting for the new Art and Education Center. Here's his presentation:
This symposium, Gallery Illumination: LED Lighting in Today's Museums, brought together lighting designers, conservators, and scientists to discuss the use of LED lighting in museums. Other presenters included staff members from the National Gallery, London, the National Gallery, Washington, the Minneapolis Museum of Art, the Pacific Northwest Laboratory, as well as the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
