Where Neon Goes To Die

Yearning for Las Vegas
It’s officially unofficial. Atom Age Modernism has found a niche in history. The neon signage that burgeoned in Las Vegas in the 1950s and came to portray this entertainment haven, rendering itself iconic in the process and positioning Las Vegas firmly on the world map, has now been recuperated, restored, and assembled into a collection that the public can visit and thoroughly reminisce over.
