Flashing Lights: MONA’s Anticipated Debut

Like a moth to a flame, our eyes are naturally attracted to bright lights. Vegas, candles, chandeliers, our natural gravitation to brightness makes it no surprise that we’re squirming in our seats about MONA.

No, not Lisa. The Museum of Neon Art in Glendale is a new, permanent space where science and art can hang out, resulting in a “collection and interpretation of neon, electric and kinetic art.” MONA is the only museum in the world that features art in electric media, integrating electrical technology, creative design, and concepts of physics and chemistry. Electrifying, to say the least.

It’s set to open in January, but for now, we’ll have to settle for a tease. The gift shop is open for the holiday season, with two open exhibits for our viewing pleasure.

Need some neon in your life ’til then? Check out these photos of the exhibits:
