Clint Paugh, Lighting Designer for the Nelson-Atkins, had to go through a thorough testing process that lasted more than eight months and started with more than 15 lighting manufacturers that were narrowed down based on performance criteria.

“Part of our mission at the Nelson-Atkins is to nurture excellence, inspire creativity and build community through the power of art. Light plays a vital role in fulfilling those goals. Changing our lighting didn’t just involve changing out light bulbs; it was a project that impacted the museum to its core. As a result, it needed to be handled with extreme diligence,” said Paugh.
