Opening Celebration on Saturday, February 6th from 7-10 PM at 216 S. Brand Blvd, Glendale CA
The Museum of Neon Art encourages learning, curiosity and expression through the preservation, collection and interpretation of neon, electric and kinetic art.
Neon is a gateway between scientific principles and artistic expression. Neon illumination integrates electrical technology, creative design, and fundamental concepts of physics and chemistry. The Museum of Neon Art is the only museum in the world devoted exclusively to art in electric media, exhibiting electric and kinetic fine art, and outstanding examples of historic neon signs, for over three decades.
Photo above: MONA is honored to have in our collection this wonderful example of neon art by the Museum of Neon Art's co-founder Lili Lakich. Donated by David Smith, "Ace of Hearts" is a mixed media piece incorporating a Fresnel lens and an argon "crackle" tube. Lili is a master of light, material and craftsmanship.
