So Many Roads: The World in the Grateful Dead, November 5-8, 2014

Appearances by Chris Shaw, David Singer, Dennis Larkins, Gary Houston, & Stanley Mouse

So Many Roads: The World in the Grateful Dead, A Conference & Symposium

So Many Roads: The World of the Grateful Dead will bring together poster artists, scholars, participants, and enthusiasts for a ground-breaking four-day international conference and symposium exploring the meaning and impact of the Grateful Dead phenomenon.

The conference represents the culmination of five decades of academic work on the Grateful Dead phenomenon, and demonstrates how scholarly understanding of the Grateful Dead leads to broader understanding of a host of associated literary, historical, artistic, and social contexts and issues.

Over 50 speakers are confirmed. The international roster includes academics, family members and associates of the band, journalists, artists, musicians, and over 15 authors of Dead-related books. On Friday, a celebration of San Francisco poster art featuring work by Stanley Mouse, David Singer, Dennis Larkins, Gary Houston and Chris Shaw will be held in conjunction with a major exhibit of Grateful Dead art in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library.

Confirmed participants include Grateful Dead Vault Archivist and Legacy Manager David Lemieux; Rhino Records President Mark Pinkus; acoustician Elizabeth Cohen; technology investor and Moonalice founder Roger McNamee; journalists David Dodd, David Gans, Blair Jackson and Steve Silberman; musicologists Graeme Boone, Shaugn O’Donnell and Brian Felix; historians Michael Kramer and Peter Richardson; photographers Susana Millman, Jay Blakesberg, Ed Perlstein and Bob Minkin; and master chefs Kimball Jones, Kevin Weinberg and Ray Sewell. Family members of the band include Trixie Garcia, Rosie McGee, and Rhoney Stanley.

On Friday November 7, from 6-9 PM there will be a poster reception and Musical Performance by Doobie Decibel System (Roger McNamee and Jason Crosby)

For event registration and more information, visit the conference website.

September 2014 – March 2015

Includes work by David Singer, Lee Conklin, Stanley Mouse, Wes Wilson

From 1966 to 1971, an unprecedented quantity of extraordinary graphic art was produced in the San Francisco Bay Area. This resulted from the demand for posters, handbills, and flyers advertising rock concerts in San Francisco. The two main patrons of this proliferation of posters were Bill Graham – who promoted concerts at the Fillmore and Chet Helms, leader of an organization called the Family Dog, which produced concerts at the Avalon Ballroom.

Big Five SF Poster Artists, 1967Poster artists were often inspired by Art Nouveau masters such as Alphonse Mucha whose blocky lettering was made psychedelic by Wes Wilson. Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse were further drawn to advertising art and appropriated images. Mouse and a Southern California artist named Rick Griffin were also infatuated with the artwork that grew out of hot-rod car culture. Victor Moscoso, on the other hand, created posters that nearly vibrated before the viewer’s eyes.

This exhibition features over 150 posters created by these five artists along with many lesser-known artists who designed posters for shows at the Fillmore and Avalon featuring bands such as the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and the Thirteenth Floor Elevators.

Guest curator Ben Marks is the Senior Editor of CollectorsWeekly.com and the Vice-President of The Rock Poster Society, whose members kindly loaned all of the posters, postcards, handbills, tickets, and other ephemera for this exhibition. For more information about The Rock Poster Society, please visit TRPS.org.
