Museum of Neon Art
|Location||216 S. Brand Blvd. |
The Museum of Neon Art (MONA) is an institution that exists to encourage learning and curiosity through the preservation, collection, and interpretation of neon art. The first museum devoted to art that incorporates neon lighting, it exclusively exhibits art in electric media, including kinetic art and outstanding examples of historic neon signs. Its location in downtown LA closed in 2011 and reopened in Glendale, California in 2016. The collection includes neon signs from the Brown Derby and Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
In addition to exhibitions and tours, the museum offers introductory classes in glass bending held in the museum's state-of-the-art studio.
