LEDs Light Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art

GE Energy ManageThe Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) installed Zinnia LED lighting fixtures by Journée Lighting, featuring General Electric’s Infusion LED Modules.

MOCA replaced traditional 75-watt PAR halogen lamps with more than 450 new Zinnia luminaires outfitted with the Infusion LED Modules, offering a color rendering index of 90; a 2700K color temperature; and a dramatic reduction in IR radiation and UV radiation, both of which are carefully monitored in museums due to their harmful effects on artwork.

The new system is expected to pay for itself within seven years and decrease maintenance costs. The removable modules allow MOCA to update its lighting without having to replace entire lighting fixtures.
