Illuminate Couture

Visitors to Heritage Museums & Gardens’ CUT! Costume and the Cinema exhibit have the rare opportunity to see more than 40 original movie costumes, props and memorabilia up close. The exhibit, on display includes five centuries of fashion and style as interpreted by award-winning costume designers and worn by stars including Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley and Maggie Smith.

The museum staff partnered with lighting designer Nancy Goldstein from Light Positive to install approximately 100 MR16 lamps and SNAP Systems. Soraa’s LED with Vivid Color and Natural White Technology renders the widest range of colors in the objects that we see, without ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) radiation that can fade or harm the artifacts.

“As a lighting designer, the most important parts of a project like this are flexibility and the conservation of the artwork. It was critical to select a lamp that emits no UV light. The flexibility of the SNAP System allowed me to modify beams so that each piece in this exhibit is illuminated perfectly and looks its very best,” said Nancy Goldstein of Light Positive. “I applaud Heritage Museums & Gardens for having the long view to invest in Soraa lamps for continued benefit year over year.”
