If you happen to live near, or be visiting, the city of Glendale, California — as I was over the Christmas Holidaze — and you also love Neon signs and other types of neon-based artworks, be sure to stop by the Museum of Neon Art. MONA is small museum, just one big room basically, with a rotating collection of vintage neon signs and other neon artworks, as well as temporary exhibits, and its admission price is $10 well-spent for this non-profit venue that also hosts Neon Art Making classes! Towards the rear of the museum gallery is small niche that’s easy to miss if you don’t explore thoroughly (it was pointed out to me by a docent) where you can see vintage plasma tubes and spheres, including the one seen in this post, on which the ubiquitous commercial Plasma Balls that we all owned in the 1980s (I still have mine) were based. Neato.

MONA (Museum of Neon Art) is Located at 216 S. Brand Blvd. (Corner of Caruso) in Glendale, CA 91204

Plasma Sphere Nightlight

Plasma Ball Night Light

Talk about an Oh Wow factor! Remember when full-sized, tabletop globe versions of these things were all the rage and everybody had one? I still have mine! I love that someone made a nightlight version, so you can have a mini acid flashback every time you get up at night to use the bathroom!

This vivid nightlight plugs directly into the wall and radiates with swirling colored light. When the switch is turned on and the bulb is touched, the internal currents are guided to fingertips and dramatically twist and undulate around the bulb’s interior. Made of glass, xenon glass, and ABS plastic.

Details:

  • Size: 7″x 3″
  • Standard 120V plug in
  • Not compatible with 220
