Over the weekend Patrick and I spent a day shopping in Burbank (I came home with quite a few goodies which will show up sooner or later on the blog, I’m sure) followed by a visit to the Museum of Neon Art. I would likely say that signage from the mid-20th century is my favorite art. Neon is simply spellbinding to me.
MONA is quite small when compared to most museums, and is a nice addition to a day spent shopping or grabbing a bite to eat. It honestly took us around 45 minute or so to walk about the museum and read the details about the signs and those of the current photography exhibit, with showcased Instagram users. But it’s totally worth a visit. These signs are both works of art and incredible pieces of Americana.
I know what a lot of you are wondering and about to ask, especially those who have been to Las Vegas “Have you been to the Neon Museum in Las Vegas?” Well, we were slated to go on our last day in Vegas last year, but Patrick got so sick during that trip that he didn’t feel up to it, despite us already having tickets. So, trust me, next trip to Vegas, it’s happening.
