SYDNEY & WALDA BESTHOFF SCULPTURE GARDEN
New Orleans, Louisiana

CBBLD provided a complete exterior lighting service for both artworks and surrounding landscapes at a sculpture display park owned by the New Orleans Museum of Art.  A variety of creative exhibit lighting techniques are used to give visual impact to the art pieces, but always with the goal of hiding the fixtures from view.

As day turns to night the park recedes into the darkness and the paths and sculptures are brought forward through illumination.  The lighting scheme facilitates users’ experience of the garden by creating vistas, emphasizing critical axes and guiding visitors through the collection.
