GLENDALE, CA.- The Museum of Neon Art announces that after a year long public search it has selected Corrie Siegel to serve as the Museum’s Executive Director. Siegel officially began her role on April 1st, 2020. She has taken over fully from Kim Koga who retired from her post of 20 plus years in July 2019. MONA is grateful for the leadership of Interim Director Laura Darlington in this time, as well as the visionary leadership of Koga over the past two decades as we look forward to a new chapter of MONA.

Siegel brings to MONA twenty years of experience working to empower and engage communities through the arts. Her work as a museum professional is rooted in collaboration, creativity, and pedagogy. Siegel’s experience as a gallery director, exhibit curator, museum educator, museum administrator, and artist provides her with a solid foundation for the role as Executive Director at MONA. As a Co-Founder and Director for Actual Size Los Angeles Siegel has championed contemporary art and audience engagement for over a decade. In addition, she has worked in museum education and administration at LACMA, The LA Philharmonic, The Armory Center for The Arts, The Norton Simon Museum, The Fowler Museum, and The Corita Art Center. Corrie embodies values that MONA represents—creativity, curiosity, community, and preservation.

In her role as Executive Director, Siegel will work to deepen community connections to MONA, support new artistic production and experimentation, and safe-guard historic signage and art through new educational, artistic, and funding initiatives. “My professional experience as a museum educator and gallery director has made clear the transformational capacities of the arts. I am dedicated to education, arts, and cultural outreach and have been enchanted by neon signage since I was young. Illuminated signs are a democratic art form accessible to so many walks of life. Once a visitor to MONA takes the time to learn about neon art or signage, they can bring the spark of curiosity with them into the city, transforming their world into a glowing museum. I am thrilled to join such an amazing team,” says Siegel.

The Museum of Neon Art encourages learning, curiosity, and expression through the preservation, collection and interpretation of neon, electric, and kinetic art. Located in the heart of Glendale, The Museum of Neon Art is the only museum in the world devoted exclusively to art in electric media, exhibiting electric and kinetic fine art, and outstanding examples of historic neon signs, for over three decades.
At the crossroads between scientific principles, artistic expression, and historic preservation, MONA aims to kindle curiosity and the energy of engagement within its walls and beyond.
