Lounging in the 60s

Recessed Ceiling Light Fixture

Object Name

Recessed Ceiling Light Fixture


Constructed of aluminum, copper, and glass, this lighting fixture dates to a 2011 reconstruction project commissioned to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.  
Though it was installed long after Beaver Meadows Visitor Center first opened its doors to the public, this artifact demonstrates some of the long-term influences of Taliesin’s interior and exterior designs for Beaver Meadows. Symbolizing the continued compromise between the intended visitor center values and the growing legal requirements for buildings, this recessed ceiling light fixture was decommissioned for reasons unknown and transported to Rocky Mountain National Park’s archives with its bulb in tow.
