Caroline Rinker Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

On March 18, 2023, EdisonReport Lifetime Achievement Awards held at Parsons School of Design, honored Caroline Rinker for making significant contributions to the industry, forever leaving her mark. The awards are dedicated to honoring twelve exceptional individuals, recognized as giants in lighting, for their remarkable careers, achievements, and milestones.

James O’Blaney paid a beautiful tribute to Caroline, speaking on her behalf.. “This is nowhere near enough time to get into who and what, but at least you’ll get a taste and understand why Caroline is receiving this award,” he began. “Born and raised in the Bronx, she found a position at Lighting Associates after college, working with Frank Conti, who quickly saw how talented she was. She learned an industry so well; she knew it in braille. Her toughness and tenderness were a unique blend.”
