Cheryl Godin Artist

Artist Statement

As an urban landscape artist I am historically preserving a quickly disappearing piece of American history..the neon sign!!! For decades these colorful, brightly lit, sometimes flashing works of art have invited us off the highways to diners, gas stations, motels, theaters and businesses. As travelers on the open roads of America, these signs lured us to new places and new experiences that added adventure to our travel experiences.

I travel the
legendary Route 66 and not so well known highways to collect the information to create my paintings. I am recording this small, but significant piece of American history that may not, in many cases, be shared with the upcoming generations.
