Don't miss this...Neon Spectacular

Here's a fantastic neon show being put on by the City of West Hollywood in conjunction with MONA (Museum of Neon Art) as part of the Art on the Outside Project. With an opening ceremony on August 5th. from 7.30-9.30.  A guide to Vintage and Contempory outdoor neon on Historic Route 66 and the Sunset Strip would seem to be a must.

You can even download a tour map showing a route through West Hollywood with over 50 neon signs.

Can someone please go on my behalf and report back with some pictures.

  1. As an artist myself, I enjoy reading Philip Koch's sensitive writing about Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, who along with Whistler and Rothko, are my favorite American painters.
    I don't live in the United States but have traveled and passed a short time there. But even with the little time spent in your beautiful country, especially in small-town America, I can relate to some of the poetical feel that Hopper and Wyeth had captured in their art, which is for me part of the attraction of their paintings.
    Browsing at the other day, as I do now and then, I find a good selection of Edward Hopper's work, ,in the big archive of Western Art, that customers can order online for canvas prints and even hand-painted, oil-painting reproductions can be made and sent to them.
    Hopper's surrealistic and depersonalized world is there again. Timeless, yes, as it is still there now in the roadside cafes and diners that I ate at all over America.
