Portable City Projects: Al Nodal & LUMENS Project

September 15, 2010 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Al Nodal & LUMENS Project: Walk & Talk

Several years ago, the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department (CAD) started a program entitled the “Living Urban Museum of Electric and Neon Signs” or LUMENS. Conceived by Al Nodal, former General Manager of CAD, the program is responsible for relighting over 150 signs throughout the Wilshire Corridor, Hollywood, and downtown Los Angeles. Today, as sources of funding for the project have narrowed, the re-lighting effort has slowed considerably.  The Museum of Neon Art currently administers LUMENS with support from the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency and private funding.

Al Nodal will lead us on a walk along Hollywood Boulevard and talk about the Lumens Project.
