After your work is done, does your other artistic side come out?
We want to see it.

Hosted by the DLFNY, IALD and IESNYC, New York-based lighting professionals (and a some of their friends in allied fields) all passionate about their day jobs, will exhibit their after-hours creative pursuits at the fourth edition of the Moonlighting Exhibition and Reception.

Past events have featured glass blowing, jewelry making, photography, paintings, pottery, sculpture, writings, and origami, among many other creative endeavors.
It's fun and surprising to find out the hidden talents of your friends and associates in the industry and a wonderful way for the community to celebrate itself and individual members.

Message from the President


That just about sums up the 50th anniversary of the IESNYC Lumen Awards Gala! It was an evening full of surprises, and some magic too. As my friend the late Albert Hadley used to say, “Give them what they never knew they wanted,” and we did it in spades. The Afterglow Party was a fabulous topper for the evening.

The Lumen event has grown from 18 dinner guests in 1965, to an international event with over 900 attendees. A glorious evening was had by all. In addition, we honored some of our Section members with our IES/IESNYC Service Awards: IES Section Service Award, Nathalie Faubert; IES Meritorious Service Award, Clara Powell and Susan Tillotson; and an IESNYC 2018 Brilliance Award to Robert Prouse.

We have some great programs as part of our celebration year — Lumens Today, featuring 2018 Lumen recipients; and as we are all creating the future, we offer Lumens Tomorrow, a look and discussion of new technologies we will use to shape our future Lumen projects. To top the season off, we will hold a fantastic multimedia exhibit of our Lumen projects over the last 50 years using all the visual and sound. Technologies of today — this is not to be missed! Stay tuned for details.

Have a great 4th of July holiday, enjoy, and be safe!

Caleb McKenzie
President, New York City Section of The Illuminating Engineering Society
