This exciting exhibition featured more than 100 posters from music icons of the 1960s and 70s. The images are recognizable to anyone who has ever hung a poster under a black light in their room: The Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd, Genesis, the Grateful Dead, Santana… to name only a few.
The images were created by some of the most talented graphic artists of the time, including Milton Glaser, Peter Max and Rick Griffin. The musicians and bands featured in these images–and the design concepts pioneered by the artists who created them–had an impact on popular culture far beyond the music world and continue to influence musicians, artists and designers today.
Drawn from the permanent collection of the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Loretto, Pennsylvania, from a major donation by concert photographer Mark del Costello, these posters capture an era when pop art, culture and music intersected in a way that literally changed the world.
