Art Lecture - The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll

Monday, May 22nd
Creekside Room - 7pm

In the mid-1960s, artists, activists, writers, and musicians converged on Haight-Ashbury with hopes of creating a new social paradigm. By 1967, the neighborhood would attract as many as 100,000 young people from all over the nation. The neighborhood became ground zero for their activities, and nearby Golden Gate Park their playground.

Join us for a flash back trip showcasing the 50th anniversary celebration, at the de Young, of the adventurous and colorful counterculture that blossomed in that legendary San Francisco summer of 1967. Our speaker will be presenting the de Young's highlights of this exhilarating exhibition of iconic rock posters, photographs, interactive music and light shows, costumes and textiles, ephemera, and avant-garde films.
