With their fluorescent gradients and radiant color palettes, the Colby Poster Printing Company became an integral part of the Los Angeles street culture for over a century. Struggling with the invasion of the digital age, Colby was not able to withstand the pull of technology and had to close its doors in 2012. Their legacy has not been forgotten and still lives in the minds of the people who grew up and remember their iconic presence in the L.A. landscape. The HMCT is currently displaying some of the Colby prints from the collections of Simon Johnston and Clive Piercy. Come join us!
