If you're one of the thousands who didn't get to enjoy Tim Burton's Lost Vegas installation at the Neon Museum, we have good news and bad news. The bad news is that the show closes April 12, coronavirus or no coronavirus (though both Burton and Neon Museum staffers have intimated that this is only the first step in a continuing collaboration). The good news is that the museum is doing a Facebook Live tour of the show on Friday, April 10, at 1 p.m. Pacific time, hosted by education specialist Mitch Cohen.
“The exhibition was scheduled to continue through Sunday, April 12, but with the museum’s temporary closure due to COVID-19, we know thousands of art lovers will miss their chance to see Burton’s outstanding exhibition,” said Rob McCoy, Neon Museum president and chief executive officer, in an email statment. “This live, virtual tour will take place especially for them—and will be enjoyable for anyone who appreciates Burton’s work and iconic Las Vegas sign design.”
The virtual tour, and lots of other cool Neon Museum stuff, is online at Facebook.com/NeonMuseum.
