Share Article

Hawaii photographer David Murphey is featuring a portfolio of photographs from the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas, NV.

"I found the neon boneyard to be a dream location to photograph," says David. "Visually, it's just amazing. But what's even better than the colors, shapes and textures is the history that's wrapped in the signs. You feel like you're a part of old Sin City."


The boneyard, located outside of downtown Las Vegas is home to over 150 vintage signs and artifacts. Signs date from the late 1930s through the early 90s and represent casinos, resorts and local businesses in the Las Vegas Valley.

The Neon Museum oversees the property and it’s going through a major renovation. The boneyard will have a visitors center and exhibition capabilities in 2012. Tours are available – it’s definitely something to put on your ‘must do’ list on your next visit to Vegas.
