Should you use LEDs or Fiber Optic Lighting for artifact lighting? Should we spot measure or calculate exposure over time? We will explore a variety of lighting techniques including light sources, occupancy sensors, and lighting control systems. We will also present two case studies detailing lighting conservation issues for the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles and George Washington's Tent at the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.
