Description

There is a growing national movement to save historic neon signs as advertising that has evolved to art.  Eric Lynxwiler fills us in on what makes a neon sign museum-worthy for the Museum of Neon Art. Hit the virtual road with Debra Jane Seltzer, a legendary historian who travels coast to coast to document America's neon beauties and the survivors of roadside architecture in a disappearing landscape.. Ever wonder what it takes to restore a vintage neon sign? Tod Swormstedt of the American Sign Museum shows us how it's done, step-by-step. Followed by a panel discussion of best practices for our neon heritage in historic corridors across the country. At 3:00 PM we invite you to stay for an open forum on the future of neon! Hosted by Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan.
