"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign," as the old song goes — and in Tucson, that’s especially true at the Ignite Sign Art Museum.

Jude Cook and his wife own and operate the museum.

He learned sign painting in 1972 right out of high school and opened his own sign company in 1976. He started collecting signs around that time and says at some point, he reached a critical mass, which led to the museum. 

The Show spoke with him to learn about what led him to start collecting them.
