Neon Artwork at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
The San Francisco Arts Commission will host a lighting and dedication ceremony to commemorate a new sight-specific neon artwork on the western facade of the historic Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Through the use of language acclaimed conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth, W.F.T (San Francisco) presents the etymology of "Civic" and "Auditorium" in white neon.
The neon was made and shipped from Neonlauro in San Vendemiano, Italy. YESCO coordinated and installed the artwork.
This is Kosuth's first permanent public artwork on an historic building in the United States.
Monashee Lodge
The Monashee Lodge is a magnificent facility owned and operated by Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) in Mica Creek, British Colombia, Canada. The lodge hosts helicopter skiers for some of the best tree skiing in the world.
YESCO was asked to build a very unique sign that blended with the environment and also gave drivers at night the ability to identify the lodge. The cabinet is fabricated with Corten weathering steel and internally illuminated with LED lighting.

YESCO Awarded First Place in 2018 Sign Design Competition by WSA
Ritz Classic Apartments
YESCO Custom Electric Signs received a 1st Place award in the design competition at the 2018 World Sign Associates (WSA) annual conference held in New York City. The award-winning design in the large free-standing category was produced for Ritz Classic Apartments in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Weidner Apartment Homes contracted with YESCO to refurbish the iconic Ritz Classic Bowling Pin sign that had stood in South Salt Lake since 1958. The challenge was to redesign the well-known landmark with the look of a classic 1950’s sign using modern technology. Due to its historical value, a variance was granted by the city to rebuild the sign to its original 90-foot height.
“The WSA Coolness competition is a great showcase of exceptional work from around North America. Voting is determined by peer ballot. YESCO receiving first place is an impressive feat since they are up against so many other premier sign companies,” said Grant Price, WSA executive vice president. The award was presented to Jeffrey S. Young, senior vice president of YESCO.
