    Two Sides of Every Story: A Review of Lighting Projects – Glitz, Glam, Flub and Fumble

    IES Chicago welcomes Steve Peterson and Dean Brockob, who will present a series of lighting projects, some where a lighting designer was used and some without. The “good” presentation will uplift and inspire. The “not-so-good” will amuse and serve as a reminder of why a design team should use a lighting designer.
