The new Neon and Light Museum pop-up invites guests to stand in, under and around approximately 70 professional neon and light-based sculptures in an exhibition opening in River North at 325 W. Huron St. (formerly the site of Nacional 27) on Sept. 9-Oct. 31.
Among the highlights are certain to be "Breathe," a 14-foot-tall perspective-based neon sculpture whereby when seen from the west, an image of a mature woman smelling a rose appears, while the view from the north reveals an image of a young girl blowing the seeds of a dandelion, as created by artist John Bannon; "Circle's Edge," Monika Wulfer's installation inviting participation with activated gas trapped in glass tubes; and an iconic neon self-portrait by legendary Beatle John Lennon.
The Neon and Light Museum is an expansion of the "On Neon" show presented here in 2020 by the Ken Saunders Gallery.
Reservations, capped at 60 persons per hour to maximize each individual experience, will be required for entry; no walk-ins will be allowed at this time. For more info on the new Neon and Light Museum experience and to reserve tickets, visit www.NeonAndLightMuseum.com .
