Signed Original AOR 2.215 Human Be-In Poster

Signed Original AOR 2.215 Human Be-In Poster

Item Description:

The Human Be-In took place in Golden Gate Park in January 1967 and ushered in the “Summer of Love” later that year. The Human Be-In is generally considered one of the most important events in the hippie/counterculture movement and it featured “All S.F. Rock Groups,” including the Grateful Dead, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Country Joe & The Fish, Quicksilver Messenger Service, as well as Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, and Jerry Rubin. This is the second major piece that Griffin produced; his first was a poster for the Psychedelic Shop in Haight-Ashbury. After seeing this poster, Chet Helms of the Family Dog invited Griffin to design posters for the Avalon Ballroom, and the rest is history. Griffin quickly rose in prominence and is considered by many to be the finest poster artist of the time.
