The award-winning Heide Museum of Modern Art brings art to the people. Located in the outer Melbourne suburb of Bulleen, the Museum encompasses five galleries in 6.5 hectares of parkland, showcasing local, indigenous and international exhibitions. From culture purists to families, there is something for everyone, including a fascinating history from the site’s roots as an indigenous meeting place to the modern adaptation by the Reed family of a home to a gallery.

Such diversity of scope calls for great flexibility. Buckford Illumination Group supplied ERCO’s NEW Parscan spotlights and wallwashers for the existing track, enabling the Museum team to seamlessly integrate them with Heide’s iconic architecture, accentuating its lines and natural light sources. The Parscan lights, equipped with Casambi controls, can be easily adjusted to accommodate different exhibits, regardless of their size, structure, texture, and lighting requirements.

Heide’s art is no doubt your reason to visit. But pay heed to the lighting; it is what makes the exhibits speak for themselves.

Stay tuned! We’ll be unveiling our case study video on the upgrade very soon.
