The National Museum of African American History and Culture and The National Museum of American History recently held premieres of the “Black Lightning” television program and the animated Batman film “Gotham by Gaslight,” featuring uplighting from a collection of CHAUVET Professional and WELL Fit fixtures.

Lighting designer Elizabeth A. Coco outfitted both museums with the fixtures, which were supplied by Atmosphere, Inc. 

Coco positioned the battery-powered WELL Fit units throughout the venue, including 18 in front of The National Museum of American History, 12 in the main hallway of the museum, and four in the Warner Bros’ theatre lobby, as well as 12 by the VIP Red Carpet in the Museum. An additional 48 WELL Fit fixtures surrounded the interior of the African American museum’s Heritage Hall.  Coco was able to create a consistent color palette at the event. Mostly, she used the RGBA units to render deep blues and purples that accented the evocative urban superhero theme of the after party, with deep yellow accents.

“Without question, the colors we got from the WELL Fits helped set the mood by enabling us to get those true saturated cobalt and midnight blues,” said Coco. “The event was all about evoking an immersive environment in the tone of the comic heroes – creating a heightened ‘Gotham’ and night feeling with color. The colors of our uplighting definitely set the tone for the evening.”
