Neon Still Sizzles

Reports on the death of neon have been somewhat exaggerated. LEDs did finish off the use of neon in interior and exterior architectural lighting, but neon tube bending shops survive here and there. Neon's vibrancy and sizzle make older signs worth preserving, and the next generation of neon artists are finding wider acceptance of this unique form of expression. In February the Museum of Neon Art (MONA) reopened at its new, permanent home in Glendale, CA. Beyond exhibiting relics of a bygone age, neon fans are heralding a resurgence of the medium in both commercial speech and as an art form.
