Recently, the Arizona Biltmore used fixtures from CHAUVET Professional to illuminate the hotel’s Midway Gardens.

Creative BackStage created a lighting design that featured both Maverick and Rogue fixtures.

“We were brought in by Hello Arizona to light the pool and lawn areas of the Biltmore grounds,” said John Garberson of Creative BackStage. “From a lighting design point of view, this is an ideal canvas to work your art on. Our focus was to use light to accent the aesthetics of this site.”

Garberson and his team of lighting designer Chris Brodman and programmers Rita Assi and Cullen Noon accomplished this task by washing the pool, paths, and lawn area in soft hues that played off well against the Wright-inspired grounds’ natural flowing lines. 

“There is a peaceful, understated elegance to this site, especially at night,” said Garberson. “The colors that we created with our lights really supported this mood.”  

Garberson and his team also used four 13’ truss towers. Each tower had one Maverick MK2 Spot and four Rogue R2 Wash fixtures, along with three ellipsoidals.

“We relied on the Mavericks for our immersive gobos,” said Garberson. “With their two gobo wheels, they open a lot of good creative possibilities.” 

A collection of 32 CHAUVET DJ Freedom Par fixtures was positioned around the pool area for uplighting. The battery-powered Freedom Par was also used to uplight palm trees in the resort’s lawn area, where a stage was set up for the evening’s entertainment. Lighting the artists that provided that entertainment were eight tower-mounted Rogue R1 Wash fixtures. Ellipsoidal units were used to illuminate the path that led from the pool to the lawn area.
