Event Description
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.
