Jeffrey Chiplis neon sculptures should not be seen as symbols of fragility following attack on the artist

The article explains how the fragile artwork of neon sculptures created by Jeffrey Chiplis are not influenced by the fact that he was shot twice on the street in Cleveland. Instead the fragility is in how you get past and through the artwork. “The sculptures require a civility analogous to the common decency Chiplis or anyone else has a right to expect on the streets of Cleveland.”  The sculptures are a dedication to the vitality of neon in urban life in the city of Cleveland.
