Great news for the Museum of Neon Art! They are all systems go on their new home.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

The City Council on Tuesday approved a $1.6-million construction contract for the long-awaited Museum of Neon Art, sealing a marquee addition to the downtown corridor that had been jeopardized by the dissolution of local redevelopment.

Construction on the building across from the Americana at Brand is now set to begin in April — and MONA’s executive director, Kim Koga, said she couldn’t be more excited… The exterior construction work is slated to be complete by February 2014, according to the city.

I couldn’t be more thrilled for this great group of people. Kim and her team are passionate about preserving the artistic roots of neon sign making, and I am so proud to have had three of my pieces there: Car and Trailer, Speed Shop and Indian Motocycles.
