Herb Greene Opening Event Ticket
After a ribbon cutting at 5:30 pm, Exhibition and Opening Reception sponsor Amoeba Music -- which has had a home at 1855 Haight Street for more than a quarter-century -- will have DJ Earthquake spinning rare and classic vinyl, providing a soundtrack to Greene’s incredible work.
The Center’s renowned print studio will be open and in action throughout the evening. All attendees will receive a complimentary Art Center hand-crafted-and-screen-printed Opening Night credential and lanyard upon their arrival.
Reception attendees will also have the opportunity to have their portrait taken by a professional photographer free of charge (selfies are cool too) in front of a replica of the famed hieroglyphics-covered wall from Greene’s 66 Baker Street apartment where he lived in the 1960s. The wall served as and the backdrop for his legendary portraits of Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin, Grace Slick and dozens of Haight-Ashbury luminaries and future rock legends. Greene’s famed wall was also featured on several albums, including on the cover of Jefferson Airplane’s 1967 Surrealistic Pillow album.
Visitors will depart with an Opening Night goody bag, and the Art Center’s retail store will carry unique merchandise tied to the exhibition, incredible prints from Greene’s archives, and the opportunity to purchase a custom exhibition poster designed by legendary poster artist Stanley Mouse.
Light snacks will be served along with wine, beer, soft drinks, and water.
We look forward to hosting you!
