This neon art exhibit reflects the history of neon signs and their prevalence in art and design for the last few decades. The gallery it is placed in is showing two parallel exhibits -- one that shows neon designs from the 1930s and another that charts neon's history since the 1960s.

The exhibition is titled 'Neon: The Charged Line' and is being featured at the Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool, England. The exhibition shows several formats in which neon lights have been used, including in artistic writing, as abstract art, as wall art, as signage outside of establishments and as decorative objects. The eye-catching series is able to show the versatility of the commonly used light as well as its popularity throughout the years.

This neon art exhibit is likely to capture the attention of those who enjoy neon as an art form.
