Travel back to 1967 to discuss the pivotal moment when revolutionary youth culture coalesced in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco and in Greenwich Village here in New York. Through works in From the Collection: 1960–1969, we’ll explore the explosion of wildly new, often psychedelic art and design from this fertile counterculture. Works to be discussed include Harry Gordon’s Poster Dress, Joshua Light Show’s Liquid Loops, and DayGlo concert posters by artists such as Bonnie MacLean, who stated that “these posters were created with an intensity that was lived.” So drop in, hang out, share the love, and don’t forget to wear flowers in your hair!
