About this Event

The Art of Neon is a main event covered by the 3-Day pass to Neon Speaks Festival and Symposium. To find out more about main and auxiliary events, See Neon Speaks full schedule for April 26-27-28, 2019.

An ongoing afternoon event with timed tickets for an hour-long demonstration with Shawna Peterson and special guests in a working neon shop.

Shawna Peterson has been perfecting the art of tube bending for neon signs and sculptures for 30 years. She started out sitting behind the front desk of a retail neon shop, when her boss insisted she learn tube-bending during downtime. She continued working in different neon shops before opening her own operation in Oakland 19 years ago. Her neon art was featured in the She Bends exhibit of all-female neon artists at the Midway Gallery in San Francisco and the Museum of Neon Art, Glendale CA.
