Lighting Tips for Exhibits

Art and light go together like coffee and cream, especially with exhibits. Art exhibit curators are very keen on where they place the pieces of arts and the angles and positioning of the light.

Artworks look too flat when you place them in a boringly lit room. To give justice to one of a kind art, you need to showcase them with the help with proper lighting.

Below are some tips that can help you set the right light for an art exhibit: 

Floor Lights These small lights can be used to brighten up any piece of art from the bottom. You can move these around and position them to create flattering shadows and highlights for the art.

They’re simple to work with and you can get these in any hardware store and even in gardening supply store since they’re commonly placed in landscapes. You can even get them in a number of hues and colors of added drama. 

Ceiling Lights Like floor lights, these can help give the artwork flattering shadows and highlights. They act like little spotlights that help draw the attention of the crowed into the art work.

Galleries and museums often have complicated lighting systems that cost a lot, but ceiling lights can be replaced with a few track lights installed with LED bulbs. Light tubes placed over the art also give the same look. 

Main Lighting This is basically used to light up the whole space and is the most important light system. You can simply tweak this, depending on what theme the mood the exhibit is trying to achieve.

Use a few LED light bulbs with different tones to set the right mood. You can also set up a few dimmers and connect it to the system to make it easier to change the room’s look.
