David Hutson, Memory & Desire: A Personal Exploration of Neon Art, Past and Present
2018 KRANZBERG EXHIBITION SERIES
In Rudi Stern’s book “Let there be Neon” he outlines the magic of neon, weaving high art with a handcraft relegated mostly to the electric-sign trade. Stern recognizes the potential for the medium, beyond the logos: “neon is sculptural, architectural and when done right, is highly aesthetic.” Recognizing its popular appeal, Laumeier Sculpture Park’s 2018 exhibition with neon artist and sign historian David Hutson will also showcase two large scale outdoor neon works along with his extensive collection of vintage neon signs alongside and in conversation with a checklist of about 15 neon sculptures from Hutson’s current body of work.
