Recently I read an article about the “Neon Sign Boneyard” in Las Vegas written by my friend Bigod, who found a very interesting photo-album about it on Flickr.
“The Neon Sign Boneyard in Las Vegas. Here you find the old neon signs that were outside casinos that have long since gone. The boneyard is a fantastic commentary on the culture and architecture of Las Vegas from its early days in the 1920’s to today.”
The boneyard is part of the “Neon Museum” of Las Vegas which is located at the historic “La Concha Motel”. It’s a wide open-air gallery where old typographic neon signs are exhibited as inspiration to fascinated artists, students, historians and designers.
If you plan a trip to Las Vegas, take some time and visit that extraordinary gallery! For more impressions, visit arZan’s photo-stream.
