CASPER, Wyo. – A new exhibit at the Nicolaysen Art Museum will place the craft of neon art along side traditional mediums such as watercolors and photography.

The exhibit titled “Neon in the High Desert – A Group Exhibition,” is curated by Casper neon artist Connie Morgan, as well as fellow neon artist Tayler Drattlo, from New Brunfels, Texas, according to a release.

“This unique exhibition showcases the beauty and vibrancy of neon art, along with other mediums such as watercolors, photography, and hand-blown glass,” said the release.

The exhibit’s reception will take place at 6 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Nic.

“This exclusive event will offer attendees the chance to meet the brilliant minds behind the stunning neon art pieces on display,” the release said.

The reception will include a cash bar provided by Backwards Distillery, and food and refreshments provided by Sarah Mentock.

The neon art exhibition reflects a recent resurgence in the craft and art of neon sign making, which saw its peak popularity during the middle of the last century, and became a glowing, colorful backdrop to countless cities in the U.S. and around the world.
