Thank you for your question!
The Corning Museum of Glass does have a handful of neon pieces in its permanent collection, such as Paul Seide's "Untitled Triple Loop" (CMoG 91.4.61), though most are not currently on display.
One example of neon in the Museum’s permanent collection that is currently on display is Mark Stanley’s 1976 Flow Gate. Flow Gate was originally on display in the 1979 exhibition, "New Glass: A Worldwide Survey," and can be seen through January 5, 2020, as part of the New Glass Now | Context exhibition at the Rakow Research Library.
Interested in history? Check out Christoph Ribbat's book Flickering Light: A History of Neon (London: Reaktion Books, 2013).
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
