Stanley Mouse: A Retrospective
Now Open by Reservation Only

"Stanley Mouse is best known for the eye-popping and iconic posters, album covers, and T-shirt designs he made–often in collaboration with Alton Kelley–during the Heyday of San Francisco’s counterculture renaissance and well into the 1970s. His influential work during that era captured the color, fun, mystery, passion, and creatively liberating experimentalism of those tumultuous times."
- Bay Area writer & HSAC Friend, Blair Jackson

Haight Street Art Center is proud to present Stanley Mouse: A Retrospective, a career-spanning collection created over more than five decades of nonstop artistic inspiration. This exhibition explores all aspects of Mouse’s art. Before taking the Haight-Ashbury by storm, Mouse enjoyed tremendous success in his native Detroit detailing hot rods and airbrushing shirts and posters with whimsical drawings and paintings of crazy monsters and extreme cars. More recently, in addition to satisfying an ongoing demand for music related commissions, Mouse has delved deeply into fine art, painting vivid landscapes and wonderfully evocative figurative pieces.
