The Rock Poster Society (TRPS) seeks to perpetuate and promote the long-standing relationship between music and graphic art – also known as “Rock Poster Art”.
The Rock Poster Society is the planet’s largest organized group of rock poster collectors, artists, and dealers. TRPS (pronounced like “trips”) is an eclectic, non-profit, non-denominational, committed and focused volunteer group who have as their common bond an overriding joy in the art of the rock poster, be it Fillmore and Avalon, punk, boxing style, off-the-wall or just plain bonafide out-there.
