Digitization has begun! A grant from the Institute of Museums and Library Services allowed the Neon Museum to hire a collections assistant to digitize our museum’s collections. Our new assistant has been hard at work digitizing our Federal Heath Photograph Collection, which consists of images of signs in the 1980s and 1990s. Some of these images are on exhibit with Federal Heath technical drawings at the Iron Yard in the Las Vegas Arts District.
