Outdoor Illumination in the News

Outdoor Illumination makes a big purple statement for a North Carolina Audi dealer and devoted Prince fan

George Hartner, who operates Outdoor Illumination of North Carolina, is a big fan of the late music legend Prince. When Prince died in late April 2016, Hartner and commercial client Audi Cape Fear paid tribute by reprogramming the lighting on the dealership's prominent feature wall to shine purple. The Port City Daily (Wilmington NC) published a poignant feature article on the new lighting scheme, highlighting the strong feelings engendered by the passing of an idol, as well as the power that lighting has to capture a theme and express a range of feelings and emotions. Read the full feature: Light on a legacy: Audi dealership pays tribute to Prince (Hilary Snow, April 28 2016).
