The Lincoln Memorial





The historically sensitive lighting system used for the relighting of the Lincoln Memorial brings out many of the Memorial’s long-hidden details, and ensures that the statue of Lincoln is highly visible from the National Mall. In addition, great care was taken in the lighting of the historic murals on either side of the inner chamber to allow visibility of the murals without light levels that would damage the delicate material. The final result is a re-illuminated Memorial proudly and beautifully anchoring the National Mall.
