According to an LA Times article, “We want to spark an interest in neon, a resurgence, so that new businesses coming in will opt for it,” Angeleno Adolfo Nodal, who was general manager of Los Angeles’ Department of Cultural Affairs for 12 years says. “They serve the city in such a beautiful way — they’re public sculptures.”

Nodel and Cuban contemporary artist Kadir López Nieves have worked together to restore over 150 neon signs in Hollywood.
