Stardust

Acrylic, 2008

In downtown Las Vegas there is a very special museum. It's not your average museum, for one thing, it is outdoors in the desert. Some of the most famous neon signs from the Las Vegas strip are enjoying a second life, on the grounds of the Neon Museum Boneyard. Walking through the grounds the signs dwarf humans as they continue to impress on our minds. This painting features the old 'Stardust' hotel neon sign, integrated with forms of nearby statues at Caesar's Palace. The Neon Museum collection chronicles changes and trends in sign design and technology through pieces ranging from the 1930s to the present day.
