|Roanoke artist and filmmaker Matt Ames has launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of getting help funding his effort to restore a classic neon sign on Patterson Avenue Northwest.
Since that time I’ve been in love with it, along with hundreds of other Roanokers. When I first posted photographs from this project to Facebook it was wonderful to see the interest from numerous people in the sign and what was going to happen to it. …
I’ve been involved in numerous Roanoke historical activities in the past few years, mostly working under the title of Philosophy INC. Recently my historically based designs were chosen by Roanoke City’s Arts Commission to go on solar powered trash binds placed throughout the city. … Restoring and preserving the Commodore Inn sign seemed like a logical next step for me. I love Roanoke and if I can have a hand in preserving something as cool as the Commodore Inn sign I’d be proud.
