Neon Was Never Brighter is the inaugural event in CMAC’s multi-year slate of arts, media, and cultural programming in Chinatown, culminating in the Spring 2025 opening of Edge on the Square, the region’s first permanent Asian Pacific Islander contemporary art and media hub. CMAC envisions Edge on the Square as a transformative addition to the neighborhood, both complementing the area’s legacy restaurants and businesses, and spurring local economic development.
