The Museum of Neon Art and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles invite you to join us for a fantastic fundraiser and lighting of the newly-restored Brown Derby!

JOHN SWOPE: Neon Photographs from Hollywood’s Golden Era, 1938
MONA’s fundraiser is co-sponsored by members of the Art Deco Society Los Angeles. Together, both institutions are raising funds for the restoration and remounting of the 20′ x 8′, porcelain enamel Zinke’s shoe repair neon sign with animated neon hammer and shoe. Our goal is to place the sign back on public display on the exterior of MONA.
This open house will allow access to MONA’s neon classroom, gallery and gift shop. Drinks and appetizers will be provided with ticket purchase. The Howling Hobo DJ will also be spinning vintage vinyl from the ‘20s and ‘30s.
MONA and ADSLA members: $30 General Admission: $40
