Luce Group Illuminates Renovated Clark Art Institute

[quote]Working with the Luce Group was a dream. Traci and her team were brilliant at solving difficult lighting problems, and they made the collection come alive with subtlety and sophistication.” — Richard Rand, Clark Art Institute Senior Curator[/quote]

New York, NY, USA — Luce Group, the award-winning New York-based lighting-design firm recently completed lighting the permanent collection in the newly renovated Museum Building at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  In addition to lighting the reinstallation of the collection, Luce Group worked with the Clark to light CAST FOR ETERNITY – Ancient Ritual Bronzes from the Shanghai Museum (at the Clark from July 4–September 21) and the retail space located in the new Clark Center designed by Tadao Ando.

The Clark Art Institute selected Luce Group as exhibition lighting designer on the basis of Luce’s extensive experience in lighting art thoughtfully while keeping light levels appropriate for sensitive and important works of art.

Traci Klainer Polimeni, founder and owner of Luce Group, stated:

“My team was tasked with specifying lamps and accessories for all art lighting and to be onsite to work with the curators to light the Clark’s collection. Luce had the opportunity to recommend specific LED retrofit lamps for the Museum Building. Drawing on our extensive experience researching and specifying LEDs, we specified a lamp that was energy-efficient, required significantly less maintenance, and enhanced the appearance of the collection through fantastic color temperature and color rendering index.

We are delighted to have worked with the Clark in lighting its prestigious collection and look forward to returning to work on MAKE IT NEW – Abstract Painting from the National Gallery of Art 1950 – 1975 (at the Clark from Aug. 2 – Oct. 13).”
