Tucson, Arizona, has a new museum, and it focuses on a subject near and dear to SDG‘s heart. The Ignite Sign Art Museum opened this week in Tucson. The opening coincided with the city’s “Modernism Week.”

The 7,000 square-foot facility has more than 250 signs, clocks and other advertising pieces. Some of the signs at the museum are from iconic Tucson attractions: De Anza Drive-In movie theater, Molina’s Midway restaurant and Jerry’s Lee Ho Market.
