Abstract

Conventional accent lighting for galleries typically consists of aimable track heads with incandescent halogen light sources such as PAR or MR16 lamps. Lately, several manufacturers have developed LED lighting systems for art galleries to provide accent lighting while reducing energy use. The objective of this study was to evaluate an LED track head designed for accent lighting and compare its performance to conventional accent lighting and to the existing diffuse lighting.
