(20th Century Fox, 1976) A one-of-a-kind, large neon sign depicting the logo for 20th Century Fox. This original sign was created by famed neon sculpture artist Lili Lakich for a Fox promotional campaign in 1976. The sign comes from the collection of Bill Wallen, who helped design promotional materials for the 20th Century Fox campaign. While creating the materials, it was decided that photographing an actual neon sign for the logo would result in a better image for publication and Lakich was hired for the job. This resulting neon sign was used in the promotion and was then purchased from Lakich by Wallen. This incredible functioning work of art is all original and is significant both in its ties to 20th Century Fox, as well as to Lili Lakich. Measuring approximately 97" long, 12" deep, and 52" tall, the sign is in good working condition with some scratches and general wear to portions of the black sign body from use and previous display.
