Christopher Wren

Christopher Wren has over 20 years of experience in the design and production of live events.  He is thrilled to be collaborating on Lightscape in the Chicago Botanic Garden for 2020.

Christopher began his design career in the haunted house industry in the late 1990’s as one of the principle designers and directors for FearStruck Productions, a company which focused on the creation and management of several large haunted attractions across the United States.  His work soon shifted into dance, theater, concerts, and corporate design work and eventually led to the formation of Keylight, Inc. in 2010, a company dedicated to creating exceptional events for global audiences.  

Christopher leverages his unique background in both conceptual design and technical management towards building bold, inspiring experiences with a consistent focus on a precise methodology in execution.

Significant production and lighting design projects include: 

Illumination (2016-2020), Chicago Ideas Week (2014-2018), Ravinia Festival (2013-2017), Chi-town Rising (2016-2017), corporate events, and private parties featuring talent such as Sara Bareilles, John Legend, Leon Bridges, FUN, Stevie Wonder, Train and others.
