Drawing inspiration from the city’s bar and restaurant scene, several area designers and artist will debut new works in neon tonight in AIGA Philadelphia SPACE’s latest exhibition, “Locals Only.” The original creations are meant to call to mind the sights, sounds and vibes from some of our most revered taprooms, dives, and cocktail joints through a blazing spectrum of brightly colored and glowing neon. Participating artists include Greg Christman, Julle Frey, Sharon McMullen, and Kevin Jackson. Tonight’s opening reception goes from 6 to 9 p.m. The show will remain on display through the end of the month.
