RIVER NORTH — Chicagoans can go a little retro by checking out the pop-up Neon and Light Museum when it comes this fall.
The Neon and Light Museum pop-up will run for eight weeks starting Sept. 9 at 325 W. Huron St., according to a news release. The exhibit is an expansion of the On Neon show presented at the Ken Saunders Gallery in West Town.
“Neon defined a retro era when the automobile was broadening Americans’ horizons and the highways and boulevards of America’s cities were filled with bright and often flashing illuminated messages: snappy, happy, hopeful, warm and fuzzy come-ons to a better future,” Saunders, the Neon and Light Museum director and curator, said in a statement.
The show’s hours will vary Thursday to Sunday, and reservations will be required. Tickets start at $40 and go on sale Aug. 2. More information can be found on the exhibit’s website.
