James Ranson of Saks Fifth Ave, located on Fifth Avenue in New York City, was awarded the Grand Prize in the 2006 Gene Moore Award competition for his “Madame Butterfly” display celebrating Puccini’s timeless and utterly convincing tragedy of Madame Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera, NYC.  The dramatically lit window was dazzling for all passersby enjoying this “production.”  LSI provided all of the spotlights and fill light fixtures, as well as pale lavender, medium blue color filters and spread lenses. One judge of the competition noted, “This beautifully dramatic themed display was really enhanced by light and color to evoke such an emotional feeling.”

Initiated by LSI in 1992, The Lighting Services Inc / Gene Moore Award was created to focus a spotlight on the talent, creativity, and magic of Display Window Designers and their ability to create a three dimensional art form which utilizes imaginative lighting, establishes store image and motivates buyers.
