Neon Photographers Meet in Wildwood

Wildwood, Caribbean Motel

In October 2019, over 20 neon photographers gathered at the mid-century Caribbean Motel in Wildwood, NJ. These members of an Instagram group Sign Collective / Signs United combed the historic beach town, discovering dozens of ‘50s motels and historic neon pieces. Beth Lennon of Retro Roadmap organized the weekend, which included a presentation by Len Davidson on Philadelphia neon and the Museum’s upcoming move to NextFab. The group gobbled up copies of Len’s Vintage Neon as well as a large number of his neon postcards.
