The Museum Of Neon Art Finally Has An Official Grand Opening Date
The Museum of Neon Art finally has a grand opening date: February 6. After shutting down their downtown location in 2011, the Museum of Neon Art will celebrating their grand opening in Glendale on February 6.

Ward; and a group exhibit called Illuminations. The latter exhibit now features neon and kinetic art from over 30 different artists. The first two exhibits could be seen in a limited capacity over the holidays. Check out a sneak peek of those here.
