‘The Art of Consciousness’ Premier Exhibition Celebrates the Summer of Love

June 24, 2017

In celebration of Haight Street Art Center’s grand opening and the 50th anniversary of The Summer of Love, HSAC’s inaugural exhibition, “The Art of Consciousness,” features more than 90 seminal psychedelic poster works from 1965 to 1967. The exhibit will run from July 1 through September 2017.

On display will be never-before-seen vintage original art from the “Big Five” of San Francisco rock poster art – Rick Griffin, Alton Kelley, Victor Moscoso, Stanley Mouse, and Wes Wilson – whose vision inspired thousands of young people in San Francisco and provided the visual vocabulary for the vibrant community that formed in the Haight-Ashbury.
