Bill Concannon: “Neon Bender to the Stars” – Lecture

September 8 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Artist Lecture: Bill Concannon started working with neon in 1973 and never looked back. Over the years Bill has been a neon sculptor, exhibiting since 1977, including a solo show at the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale in 2010 (his work is part of their permanent collection); and a maker of neon lighting and signs for the Movie Industry. He has worked on visual effects for all the first six of the Star Wars movies, The Star Trek series, Back To The Future, 1941, One From The Heart, and Howard The Duck (!). Bill also worked on prop neon signs for Basic Instinct, Zodiac, Black Out, Rent, Milk, 13 Reasons Why, The Matrix Resurrections, the upcoming Sofia Coppola Fairyland, and many others. As a neon sign maker he works mostly in the Berkeley-Oakland area, where he especially enjoys lighting up his long standing hometown of Crockett, CA.
