Summer of Love: Psychedelic Posters from the SCMA Collection Gallery Talk
Join curator Aprile Gallant for a Members-only behind-the-scenes peek and preview of Summer of Love, 70+ original art posters from the Museum's permanent collection by some of the major California poster artists of the 1960s. Drawing upon the aesthetics of Pop, Op, and Psychedelic art, these posters were a vital part of the burgeoning American youth culture in the 1960s. Looking at posters as both an advertising agent and an art form, the exhibition strives to understand the emergence of the '60s counterculture movement and the psychedelic aesthetic that prevailed in San Francisco during the '60s and '70s.
Members: $5 / Student Members: FREE / Members may bring up to two guests. Space limited.
