DESCRIPTION

The Museum of Neon Art is the only museum in the world devoted exclusively to art in electric media. MONA exhibits, documents and preserves contemporary neon, electric and kinetic fine art as well as outstanding examples of historic neon signs.  LA Magazine recently tagged MONA in its February 2010 issue as one of the “best small museums” to visit in LA. MONA welcomes visitors from around the world to experience the vibrant diversity of this glowing, moving art form. Each year the museum presents four to six exhibitions, including a one-person retrospective, thematic group shows, related science and technical exhibits, documentary photo exhibits that depict neon signs and fine art photography utilizing neon and light. Along with works by emerging and established artists, the museum also has an extensive collection of historical and culturally significant illuminated signs.
