Torontonians will be able to up their Insta game this spring at a new neon pop-up exhibit in the Junction.
The exhibit runs from April 12 to 14 at the Junction House and will feature a collection of neon signs, including the famed Hard Rock Museum guitar that’s over 12 feet and takes over the west end of Toronto.
With plans for a permanent museum in downtown Toronto well underway, Neon Museum Toronto is partnering with Slate Asset Management and Neon Demon for this three-day exhibit.
- A gorgeous 'Pink Moon' will light up Canada's skies this April
- 19 incredible hiking trails to check out in and around Toronto this spring
- Here's who's coming to Toronto's giant shipping container market
The pop-up is free and open to the public and invites guests to check out the featured signs and art pieces from the collections of Neon Museum Toronto and Neon Demon.
The exhibition is meant to celebrate the unique story of neon in Toronto while raising awareness around the efforts to bring a permanent museum to the city.
“Downtown Yonge BIA has been working for five years to establish a permanent home for the neon signs that once lit up Toronto’s streets,” says Downtown Yonge BIA Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director Mark Garner.
“This pop-up is the culmination of a lot of recent momentum around the project and it allows us to offer the public a preview of what they can expect when the permanent museum launches.”
