2023 Year in Review

It has now been a decade since the NEON District went from dream to reality, from a spark to fire, from abandoned storefronts to renovated historic buildings, and from a few lone creative folks in the neighborhood to a community of artists, makers, small business owners and arts professionals. Ten years in, we continue to push forward, still in need of physical improvements, more investment, and most all, places to make and show art. That drive is more important than ever – the small businesses who call NEON home need you, and us, to keep the lights on. Keep buying art, take a mural tour, attend a performance, go to brunch, buy a baguette, or make a donation to propel the NEON District forward another ten years.
