The Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery is one of the highlights on the tour of Bethany College in Bethany, West Virginia, but the museum will be closed for the next nine months to pave the way for a slew of environmental and energy-saving improvements, according to DodgeCity.com.
The 54-year-old gallery is in major need of upgrades and will soon be one of the greenest buildings on campus. A geothermal heating and cooling system will be installed, and new insulation, ductwork, wall coverings and LED lighting will be used to update the building with modern improvements.
In addition, the gallery will use LED lighting in conjunction with motion sensors that will automatically shut on and off to conserve electricity. The gallery workers also prefer the aesthetic benefits of LEDs and the lack of heat they produce will protect the artwork.
If you have a favorite piece of artwork you'd like to display, give it an instant upgrade with an LED rigid light bar. These versatile fixtures will provide warm illumination and can attach to any flat surface with the aid of mounting brackets or their 3M adhesive strips.
