Be Chic. Go Green.
Visitors will be dazzled meandering through the beautiful LED Light Gallery, an all-glass, solar-paneled ever-changing spectrum of color, shape and form. The Light Gallery is a totally unique, transitional space able to stand alone for cocktail parties and receptions, or to enhance the flow of your event by integrating into the main event. Featuring a wall of glass, exterior solar panels and a spectrum of changing LED lighted windows canopied by the delicate curves of the illuminated, ribboned ceiling, the 1,380 square foot Light Gallery connects the main areas of the museum to the Multimedia Gallery. With a dedicated entrance, coat room, rest rooms, and a stunning glass-walled corridor, it’s perfect your event.


From the galleries and exhibits to the outdoor gardens and park, inspiration for the ultimate event awaits in every nook and cranny!
