Upcoming Exhibits

 

August 24 - September 16, 2017 - Summer of Love

During the summer of 1967, thousands of people descended on San Francisco to play, party and protest. This event became known as The Summer of Love, and was a gathering eclipsed by Woodstock in 1969.

This exhibition pays tribute to the happenings on the 50th anniversary of the summer. The posters that will be on display capture the spirit of the late 1960s and early 1970s.Lee Conklin (U.S., b. 1941) Procol Harum, Santana, Salloom-Sinclair, and Tower of Power October 31 – November 2, 1968 14 1/8 x 21 1/4 in. Gift of Jim Jones, 2009

Originally collected by Scott Jones, and bequeathed to SUMA by Jimmie Jones, this collection of posters celebrates the music of the era as performed at Bill Graham’s Fillmore West.  A mile from the original San Francisco Fillmore Auditorium, Fillmore West opened in July, 1968 and closed three years later.  During that time, it was home to a wide variety of music often advertised by custom designed posters.

The selected twenty posters are to provide insight into the variety of performers who graced the stage of Fillmore West as well as the delightful artistry of the poster designs.
