Lighting Up Las Vegas
YESCO, the 103-year-old company known for creating, repairing and maintaining internationally recognizable signs, announces its exhibition, “Lighting Up Las Vegas: YESCO Marks a Glittering Century,” will move to the Clark County Library Gallery.
Formerly on display at the East Las Vegas Library, this exhibition will open to the public at the Clark County Library Gallery on Tuesday, March 21. This exhibition is sourced from the LVCVA News Bureau’s extensive archive collection and from UNLV’s Special Collections. This joint exhibition, organized with the support of the LVCVA’s Las Vegas News Bureau and The Neon Museum, examines the history and impact of YESCO in Las Vegas.
The exhibit was originally planned for 2020 to celebrate YESCO’s 100th anniversary, which took place that year, but was delayed due to the COVID pandemic. “Lighting Up Las Vegas” follows the intertwined stories of the company, city and technology, as well as the men and women who made it all possible.
