A BFA graduate of the University of Illinois, and a product of the burgeoning theatre movement of the1980’s, Howard Werner has developed from a young Chicago lighting designer into a multi-talented, many-faceted lighting, projection and multimedia design leader. Often found at the apex of the Broadway design world, he is just as likely to be found ground level - lighting a plaza, illuminating an historic building, or exercising his genius for exhibit design. His award- winning work spans theatre, architecture and event categories, and his expertise has brought him recognition as a Live Design Master Class presenter for Broadway Projections.
