Mari Tepper at Haight Street Art Center
Haight Street Art Center is proud to reacquaint—and even introduce—audiences to Mari Tepper’s unique and singular body of work in our current exhibit "Laying it on the Line" which opens June 18th, 2022.
As the first comprehensive survey of San Francisco-born artist Mari Tepper, Laying it on the Line explores the artist’s lifelong commitment to social justice and equal rights, whether it’s to celebrate one’s sexuality or advocate for access to housing and mental-health care. Best known for her “Hallelujah The Pill!!” poster of 1967, as well as a pair of rock posters she designed for Bill Graham in 1968, Tepper’s drawings, works of graphic art, and sculptures of the last half century reveal an artist who is not afraid to speak her mind via the tools available to her at the moment, from ultra-fine Rapidographs to sculptural bread dough.
Gallery open Thursday-Sunday, 12pm-6pm.
