Event Image Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Event Image Exhibition | Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster | May 13 - July 16
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his personal collection, "Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster, 1967-71" offers viewers an opportunity to experience the fun of stepping into a 60s style blacklight room featuring 10 posters and an Op art dress.

In the late 1960s, poster artists experimented by using printing inks that fluoresced under blacklight bulbs that emitted ultraviolet light. In darkened rooms lit with these special lights, the blacklight posters appeared to glow and magically radiate their own light. The blacklight poster industry took off in studios all over the country, but was primarily centered on the West Coast.

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16. Continue into the Print Study Center for more fun with The 1960s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16. Continue into the Print Study Center for more fun with The 1960s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his personal collection, "Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster, 1967-71" offers viewers an opportunity to experience the fun of stepping into a 60s style blacklight room featuring 10 posters and an Op art dress.

In the late 1960s, poster artists experimented by using printing inks that fluoresced under blacklight bulbs that emitted ultraviolet light. In darkened rooms lit with these special lights, the blacklight posters appeared to glow and magically radiate their own light. The blacklight poster industry took off in studios all over the country, but was primarily centered on the West Coast.

7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Presented by Scott Montgomery
Associate Professor, Art History, University of Denver

Scott Montgomery will trace the origins and development of the psychedelic poster in San Francisco over its initial, formative period, from its embryonic manifestations in “The Seed,” the seminal poster for the Charlatan’s psychedelic residency at the Red Dog Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada, in June 1965, to the full blossoming of the psychedelic style by the onset of The Summer of Love in June 1967. Grounded in the so-called hippie movement, the psychedelic poster emerged as a visual litmus test for being “turned-on” or hip. During this long “Psychedelic Spring,” of June 1965 to June 1967, the psychedelic poster was a primary visual means through which the San Francisco counterculture spoke to itself, fashioning its most powerful artistic visual identity.

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16. Continue into the Print Study Center for more fun with The 1960s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, opening May 13 and continuing through October 22.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his personal collection, "Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster, 1967-71" offers viewers an opportunity to experience the fun of stepping into a 60s style blacklight room featuring 10 posters and an Op art dress.

In the late 1960s, poster artists experimented by using printing inks that fluoresced under blacklight bulbs that emitted ultraviolet light. In darkened rooms lit with these special lights, the blacklight posters appeared to glow and magically radiate their own light. The blacklight poster industry took off in studios all over the country, but was primarily centered on the West Coast.

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16. Continue into the Print Study Center for more fun with The 1960s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, opening May 13 and continuing through October 22.

Event Image Exhibition | Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster | May 13 - July 16
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his personal collection, "Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster, 1967-71" offers viewers an opportunity to experience the fun of stepping into a 60s style blacklight room featuring 10 posters and an Op art dress.

In the late 1960s, poster artists experimented by using printing inks that fluoresced under blacklight bulbs that emitted ultraviolet light. In darkened rooms lit with these special lights, the blacklight posters appeared to glow and magically radiate their own light. The blacklight poster industry took off in studios all over the country, but was primarily centered on the West Coast.

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

The 1960s was a defining chapter in America's history. It was a time when a generation rebelled and lost its innocence.

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his personal collection, "Turned On!: The American Blacklight Poster, 1967-71" offers viewers an opportunity to experience the fun of stepping into a 60s style blacklight room featuring 10 posters and an Op art dress.

In the late 1960s, poster artists experimented by using printing inks that fluoresced under blacklight bulbs that emitted ultraviolet light. In darkened rooms lit with these special lights, the blacklight posters appeared to glow and magically radiate their own light. The blacklight poster industry took off in studios all over the country, but was primarily centered on the West Coast.

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16. Continue into the Print Study Center for more fun with The 1960s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, opening May 13 and continuing through October 22.
