A Narrative History of the Light Bulb



The Stephen Wirtz Gallery's new exhibit A Narrative History of the Light Bulb, includes a new series of photographs by Catherine Wagner.

Catherine Wagner was given access to the Baltimore Museum of Industry's 50,000+ collection of historic light bulbs - one of the premier collections of vintage and antique light bulbs in the United States, with lights dating from the early 19th century.

The exhibition offers not only a historical glimpse of the evolution of lighting, but also suggests a future direction and the need for our technology to become more sustainable.

Light bulbs are not necessarily exciting. But even they have history. Incandescents are going to become past pretty soon. CFLs are present. And candelabra LED bulbs are the future.
