Haight Street Art Center presents Lee Conklin: 50 Years of Psychedelic Art

August 1 - September 30

Lee Conklin: 50 Years of Psychedelic Art

Opening Reception: August 1, 2018 from 7:00 – 9:00pm

Throughout its remarkable 50-year span, Lee Conklin’s career has been well regarded as an essential contribution to the psychedelic poster art movement. Well known for imaginative vision and inventive lettering, this work demands and rewards prolonged, patient exploration. These posters often offer voyages—visual trips—containing hidden messages, elements and value that reveal gradually and perhaps unintentionally. According to Conklin, “I just start drawing … and sometimes it turns into something.”

Today, Lee Conklin successfully maintains the freehand ethos of his established style but fuses it with the possibilities inherent in digital technologies. Not retro-psychedelic, this is contemporary psychedelic art of the highest order.

Exhibit runs through September 30, 2018.
