Toshiba LED Bulbs Light Up Houston Art Museum
Toshiba installed 150 of its A19 lamps in the museum’s Pre-Columbian Gallery and the exterior and lobby of its Caroline Wiess Law building (pictured).
The museum expects to install more lamps in Cullinan Hall in October and the Japan Gallery next year.
A19 lamps can reduce energy consumption by as much as 85 percent compared to traditional bulbs, TIC says.
