‘She Bends: Women in Neon” @ Museum of Neon Art
Neon has traditionally been a mostly male field. Today, we see a growing number of women picking up a torch and bending glass for themselves to create artwork, not just signs. What was once known for seedy depictions of the female and commercial based applications is now appreciated for it’s conceptual content and messaging. The female influence on the medium has proven to further neon’s role in the art world and prolong it’s survival as a trade due to a growing interest in it as an art form.
