The Museum of Neon Art recently moved from downtown Los Angeles to its new home in Glendale, CA. In addition to the museum’s temporary exhibitions, three famous neon works are on permanent view: “Pep Boys: Manny, Moe, & Jack,” “Green Frog Market Howdy Folks,” and “Hillcrest Laundry” sign. The “Green Frog Market Howdy Folks” sign was originally a supermarket sign in Bakersfield while the “Pep Boys” sign was on view until 1990 when the logo changed to remove the cigar from Manny’s mouth.
