Lighting Design: Burke Brown
Artistic Advisor: Michael Uthoff
All works were commissioned by the Carlsen Center of Johnson County Community College
General Manager Emily Behrmann
 
Burke Brown's lighting was some of the best I've seen in a while. Very pretty piece of work. It is the kind of lighting that takes a bit to recognize because it doesn't call attention to itself. It began to dawn on me that I wasn't fighting the lighting as so often I have to do. I've had to work through so much bad lighting that a year ago or so I penned a piece on lighting versus darking designers. Burke's lighting made my job so much easier than what I've gotten too used to. In the near future I intend to update that piece with a set of comparison examples showing what I usually get and the corrections I have to make compared to Burke Brown's lighting and the minimal corrections I need to make.
