May 2022 Section Meeting: GRAEF Tour



Please join us to tour the GRAEF corporate headquarters.  Winner of an IES 48th Annual Illumination Awards, Awards of Merit 2021.  GRAEF is located in newly revitalized The Avenue, formerly The Grand Avenue Mall.

Check out lighting that speaks to the history of GRAEF.  From I-beam fixtures that represent GRAEF’s start as a structural engineering firm, to the Wave fixture that pays homage to GRAEF’s work on the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Stop by Mo’s Irish Pub for a gathering after the tour.

We hope to see you there!
