Nantucket Whaling Museum Lighting

The Nantucket Historical Association commissioned a renovation and expansion of its whaling museum in a former candle factory to house a growing collection of rare art and artifacts. The design challenges ranged from accenting light sensitive scrimshaw in cases to anticipating theatrical and multi-media presentations around a whale skeleton in the public reception space. Modern light sources, techniques and controls illuminate the historic scene.
