Scott Rosenfeld, LC, IESNA, is a lighting designer at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, part of the world’s largest research and museum complex located in Washington, D.C. The museum is home to one of the largest and most inclusive collections of American art.
“Museums really care about lighting design, and they build the necessary infrastructure to do lighting well,” Rosenfeld said. “The other thing about museums is that they serve as a bellwether for other interior environments. If the lighting quality is good enough for an art museum, it’s likely good enough for other applications.”
