Custom Denim and Diamonds Gobo with blue and white uplighting at Howard University’s Blackburn Center
This features event lighting from Moorean’s birthday party at Howard University at the Blackburn Center. We’ve done events at the Blackburn Center before and knew that the room had tall ceilings, terrible room lighting with no control, and a massive air wall that most of our clients hate…with a passion!
Moorean had a Denim and Diamonds theme to the party and incorporated a western type of feel throughout their decor elements including a live gold cowboy statue, denim and western attire, and western themed drinks and food.
We transformed the air wall with gobo lighting of a starry night sky and a custom saloon sign above the 16ft bar.
To fix the issues with the space we set them up with our wireless uplighting and used two colors, white and blue to bring light into the space so we could turn off the overhead lights. This bathed the room in a blue and white light that was much better than the florescent-terrible-undimmable overhead lighting. They were going to have a cake so our cake spotlight package was an easy option to really showcase the cake.
Before photos of Howard University’s Blackburn Center, terrible overhead lights are not good for parties.
The massive air wall is always a problem in this room. They have such a cool effect with the large exposed brick walls inside and then ruin it with a massive 70′sesque air wall. We transformed the air wall into a sign above the bar with a western starry sky feel and a custom designed MoMo’s Saloon sign. This created a focal point around the 16ft bar in the room and let people know exactly where the drinks were. Every western town has a bar and needs a bar/saloon. These lights transformed the air wall into the starry sky with a personalized saloon sign. We also created a denim jean pocket encrusted with diamond rivets to personalize the space for Moorean’s Denim & Diamonds party. Our gobo lights are perfect for customizing and personalizing any large event space.

We are so grateful to work with awesome people like Moorean, here’s what she had to say about the event.
“You transformed that dingy, dinky place into a gorgeous western scene. I told your brother that you guys were just “showing off”! Seriously, I am more than pleased with everything. A worker there told me that he has worked there for 34 years and that room had never, ever been transformed to that magnitude.! That partition “popped”! The gobos were awesome! The uplighting was eloquent and breathtaking. Again, what can I say, but thank you, thank you and thank you.” – Moorean Baker
