Event description

Description

What do the Met, UN General Assembly Hall, Yale Rare Book Library, and 450 other museums & galleries throughout the world have in common? Answer: their artwork and artifacts are all lit courtesy of one heavy duty manufacturing facility right here in NYC.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of Edison Price Lighting, a 60,000-square-foot factory in Long Island City that has designed and manufactured high-quality architectural lighting solutions since 1952.

Led by the facility manager, our exploration of this state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will include:

  • An overview of lighting fixture design from a company that has perfected the craft since 1952
  • A walkthrough of the factory to see how raw metals, like heavy gauge steel and aluminum, are transformed into lighting fixture parts down to the nuts and bolts
  • A closer look at the facility's computer-aided machinery including laser-cutters, milling machines, and punch presses
  • Manufacturing demonstrations by select factory staff, who have mastered techniques that can only be done by hand, including spinning, wiring, and painting

Afterward, we'll finish with a look at Edison Price Lighting's new in-house art gallery to see their lighting fixtures at work!
