Paradise is a neon light sign that is currently exhibited in MOCA’s North Miami courtyard. Pierson created this piece by collecting different large scale vintage lettering commercial signs. Calligraphic, brightly colored, with references to both Minimalism and Pop, Pierson’s signage fragments reference the distinctly American roadside decay of old highways like Route 66

The acquisition of Jack Pierson’s neon light work Paradise was made possible through the “Buy a Piece of Paradise” campaign through gifts from 12 donors, many of whom personalized their contribution by purchasing letters in the name of a grandchild or spouse.
