Moonalice poster by Wes Wilson

According to Moonalice legend, the great author Charles Dickens wrote a novel that was never published … a sequel to Christmas Carol … called Yom Kippur Warren. It is a tale of joy, featuring the Ghost of Hellmans Past: Warren … who has been shredding on banjo all weekend … Hellmans Present … Mick, who has played drums on several stages … and a posse of Hellmans Future … so numerous, they may need more stages at the festival.

We miss you, Warren!! Shalom, dear friend.

When Art Rocked: San Francisco Music Posters 1966–1971

International Terminal
Departures – Level 3 – Pre-Security
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.

Pictures from Opening Day of ¡Orale! Kings and Queens of Cool

Yesterday marked the opening of four exhibitions at The Harwood Museum of Art united by the theme ¡Orale! Kings and Queens of Cool. Robin Gascon attended the opening day festivities, and sent us these great pictures she took. The Harwood has never held an exhibition like this, nor had a crowd like this. It is truly exceptional and about the people’s art. Enjoy!

Everyone is encouraged to attend the exhibitions running now through Sunday, January 25, 2015. Complete information about ¡Orale! Kings and Queens of Cool at HarwoodMuseum.org.
