Neon Art: Folk, Found, & Fine

Philadelphia Center for Architecture

1218 Arch Street Philadelphia PA 19107
  • Monday June 4th 2012 at 12:00am to Friday July 27th 2012 at 12:00am

Organized by Philadelphia’s own neon artist Len Davidson, this exhibition will feature artwork created by local craftsmen and artisans using the fun and funky technology of neon lighting. FOLK pieces are typically those made by commercial sign tubebenders or tinkerers who are usually untrained in fine art. FOUND pieces are objects that utilize neon along with found objects. FINE pieces are made with galleries and the fine art market in mind, or are pieces that might be seen in such venues.

All three categories have rarely been exhibited in Philadelphia, and the Center’s semi-permanent collection of 13 antique neon signs (from Davidson’s fledgling Neon Museum of Philadelphia) will add to the experience, and provide a commercial contrast to the art pieces. Many pieces will be for sale.
