Open to the public (reservations are required in advance), “Times of the Signs” programs will take place in the famous Neon Boneyard and will consist of illuminating lectures, panel discussions, presentations or performances.

The topic of the first program will be “Stardust Showgirls” a special evening commemorating the 55th anniversary of the opening of the Stardust Hotel & Casino. Opening on July 2, 1958, the Stardust was famous for its lavish French-style production show Lido de Paris, which ran until 1991 and was then replaced by Enter the Night, an updated production show with Broadway-styled theatrics.

The monumental Stardust sign is one of more than 150 neon signs preserved and viewed by thousands of visitors each year in the Neon Museum’s Neon Boneyard exhibition area.

“We look forward to bringing our collection of historic and iconic Las Vegas signage to life through our Times of the Signs series,” says Danielle Kelly, executive director, Neon Museum. “We invite the public to join us July 11 for an informative and entertaining evening in our incomparable Neon Boneyard.”

Panelists participating include former Enter the Night showgirl-turned-attorney Akee Levin; Joyce Marshall Moore, oral historian, University of Nevada Las Vegas and Lisa Gioia Acres, historian and author, College of Southern Nevada. Dr. Michael Greene, professor, Department of Social Sciences, College of Southern Nevada will moderate the evening’s discussion.

The evening will begin with a meet-and-greet with the panelists for Neon Museum members only at 6:15 p.m. The program will begin promptly at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be available in the La Concha reception area.

Space is limited and attendees must RSVP in advance by emailing RSVP@neonmuseum.org or by calling (702) 387-2820 (callers are asked to leave their name and how many tickets they will need). Admission is a suggested donation of $5 per attendee. For more information, go to www.neonmuseum.org.
