Texas photographer Marilyn Davenport smooth-talked her way in to the Neon Museum’s boneyard in Las Vegas a while back and took pictures of the retired signs that live there. The resulting exhibit, “Modern Jackpot: Vintage Vegas Signs by Marilyn Davenport,” will soon be on display at the Museum of Printing History. For those who can't wait, we've loaded up a sneak peek of "Vintage Vegas Signs."
The exhibit opens July 1, with an official reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 10. Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Through September 13. 1324 West Clay. For information, call 713-522-4652 or visit www.printingmuseum.org. Free. – Olivia Flores Alvarez
