"Forget the 1990s, this fall Portland is going back to those chaotic Day-Glo 1980s. That's the scene at the Portland Art Museum, at least, where Kenny Scharf's "Cosmic Cavern" is illuminating people with loads of blacklight neon paint."

They later founded the Day-Glo Color Corporation in 1946, here in Cleveland, Ohio." Ohio, Daylight, Cleveland Ohio, Wonder, Cleveland, Injury, Color Mixing

"Speaking of cupcakes... whenever anything remotely good happens at Charlesbridge -- a book wins a major award, someone has a baby, a brand new episode of Lost -- the staff at the Bridge tends to celebrate. Never met an office-full of people so ready to stop, drop, and gather in the conference room for some chips and dip. Or, in this case, Day-Glo cupcakes."

"But the most exciting part of all -- as always -- was Monday morning and the awards announcements. This year Charlesbridge got to scream real loud (just like on Pee Wee's Playhouse). The Day-Glo Brothers by Chris Barton and illustrated by Tony Persiani, was named a Sibert Honor Book." Pee Wee's Playhouse, Awards, Chris Barton, Tony, Wee, Chris, Honor, Barton

"In the past, it was never possible to photographically reproduce fluorescent colors, because the dyes used in photographic prints were not fluorescent. With the rise of digital photography, however, fluorescent colored objects can now be reproduced in photographs, so long as they’re viewed on RGB color monitors—which do have fluorescent phosphors."

"The compound word, “Day-Glo” —the name of the Cleveland-based manufacturer of fluorescent pigments—is one of those brand names that are almost too catchy for their own good. Easier to spell than “fluorescent,” Day-Glo could easily become the generic term used to describe any brand of fluorescent pigment.    Day-Glo®, however, was the company founded by Robert and Joseph Switzer, the brothers who in 1937 invented and patented this new, brighter kind of color."
