Blue Angel Motel Sign

The Blue Angel opened in 1956. The well known sign was designed by iconic Neon Designer Betty Willis. Betty who also designed the Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Willis was criticized for depicting the well endowed angel that now over looks the motel. At one time, the angel revolved and was surrounded by blue jays. The Blue Angel was inspired, fittingly enough, by the Blue Fairy in Walt Disney’s classic animated feature, “Pinocchio”. The Blue Angel closed in 2011.
