Balancing Adversity & Building Neon with Brooke Barttelbort

For artist Brooke Barttelbort, neon was a nice mix of design and hot glass work - something she’d first tasted at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She talks with Max about her move to Los Angeles, finding her tribe at the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale and touches on some very personal health challenges. Brooke also mentions her participation in “She Bends”, a presentation of female neon artists making its way around the states, and what continues inspiring her to make a difference.
