Event description

Description

How have neon signs influenced the landscape of our city? How does a unique neon sign evolve from advertising to art? Join us for an afternoon exploring these questions with San Francisco Neon authors Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan plus special guest speaker Avery Trufelman of 99 Percent Invisible (Radiotopia/KALW).

Listen to Avery's podcast called "Tube Benders”, A deep dive into the topic of neon signs, featuring SF Neon Walking Tours. Avery is one of the many talented audio producers at 99pi.org, a radio station about architecture, design and the 99% of the designed world that we often take for granted.
