Light-art pioneer Thomas Wilfred was considered radical for his mid-20th-century works fusing light and technology. Now, an exhibition of his art, which he termed “lumia,” resurrects his work—long relegated to storage because of difficulty maintaining it. Fifteen light compositions are displayed in their 
original form.
