The Museum of Neon Art has been building a new home in Glendale for the past several years and their new space really shines. The sparkling modern gallery of vintage signs and contemporary plasma-based art is holding a sneak peek and holiday shopportunity starting Friday, November 27 at noon. The new museum will have two exhibits on view: historic mid-century photos of Glendale neon by Glenn B. Ward and a display of neon clocks from the collections of Curtis Stimpson, Larry Albright and Eric Evavold. The museum’s new paseo, located directly across the street from the Americana at Brand, will also be open and includes a collection of outdoor signs. MONA closed their downtown Los Angeles location in June, 2011, but their popular bus tours continued while the new building was under construction. The sneak preview runs through Sunday and the official grand opening will be in late January.
