An illuminating field trip

The city's park next to the museum

When I first went to the Neon Museum a few years ago, it was still under construction. The former lobby of the La Concha motel was being reassembled and the sign collection was all in the "boneyard" across the street. Now the museum is all set up. The collection has been pared down a bit and organized.

Ironically, only a percentage of the signs are neon. But some are restored and operational for the nighttime tours.

Sometimes the jumble of signs looks like an acid trip shared by Robert Cottingham and Roy Lichtenstein.

Too bad I can't take this one with me

A little something for the Rolling Steel Tent
