A farewell to this epic exhibition featuring 32 woman neon benders from around the world!

 

Come enjoy the last hurrah with neon inspired cocktails & food along with local bands.

 

Each artist works intimately with neon, either bending the tubes herself, or by designing, installing and assembling the material with her own hands. Some of these women have their own neon shops or work in a shop; some share their knowledge through teaching the craft.

 

“The material of neon itself is heavy with historical overtones, the act of women repurposing this trade to convey messages about the female experience is in and of itself an act of rebellion—not to mention these women are wildly talented and their neon works are an absolute pleasure for the eyes.”

--Kelsey Issel, Arts Director at The Midway Gallery
