Tips on Lighting an Exhibit
Lighting and art have always gone together, especially when it comes to an exhibit. You can’t just place a few pieces of beautiful, one of a kind artwork in a boring, flat-lit room. You have to give the pieces of art justice and showcase them in a way that people can really appreciate them, and lighting them correctly is the easiest way to do this. Here are a few tips on how you can set up the lighting for an exhibit.
Ceiling Lights Light coming from above can help highlight a piece perfectly. Imagine it as a sort of spot light that draws everyone’s attention to whatever it’s beaming at. Museum and galleries normally have a complicated system for these lights and they spent a lot of money on them. For a simple exhibit, you can use LED light bulbs and even tubes to create the same effect.
Floor LightsThese are small LED bulbs that you can move around and light the item from the bottom. They’re very easy to work with and they’re also the easiest ones to find. You can just get a set of these floor lamps at any home improvement shops and they also come in a wide variety of colors and hues. You can also find them at gardening supply stores since they’re also commonly used for landscaping.
Main Lighting Basically, this is the room’s lighting. It’s either going to work with your display or you might have to tweak it a little. If the room is already bright enough, you won’t have to worry about the audience bumping into each other, or even the pieces of art, because they can’t see through the exhibit area. Don’t limit yourself though. You can dim the whole place down, as long as the guests are guided with track lights. For questions and inquiries, feel free to contact our customer support hotline.
