Join MONA Executive Director Corrie Siegel and MONA board member Arlene Vidor for an hour long zoom presentation that tracks the history of Glendale through its signage using archival photographs, current day images, and film clips. The development of neon as technology and art-form from the early 1900's through the present mirrors the growth of Glendale into a modern city. Tune in to see how Glendale shaped car culture, supermarkets, and even ice cream, as well as how Glendale fosters innovation in neon art today.
Arlene Vidor is a board member at MONA, member of the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission and serves on the Glendale Historical Society’s Advisory Council. She was previously appointed to two terms on the Glendale Historic Preservation Commission and successfully nominated four city properties to the Glendale Register of Historic Resources. Prior to that, Vidor served six years as President of the Glendale Historical Society and received the society’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017.
