In 1967 a convergence of cultural significance occurred in San Francisco when over 100,000 hippies, or flower children, gathered in Haight-Ashbury. This idealistic counter-cultural movement embraced the themes of peace, love, psychedelia, and Zen philosophy. It was a revolutionary time in music and art that continues to resonate today.
The Patchogue Arts Council will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of this culturally significant moment in history with a series of exhibits, performances, and events inspired by and reflective of the music and art of that time with its own Summer of Love 1967-2017 (SOL) festival. Exhibitions, performances, and happenings will be taking place throughout the town and in the PAC Gallery, all inspired by or representative of psychedelia, flower power, and the political climate of the late 60’s.
This painting will be on display from May 13 - June 24, 2017
