Art Viewing Adventures: Classic Rock Posters of the 1960s (Virtual)
Mon October 26, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join Rodney Paul, an experienced museum guide, on an exploration of classic rock posters of the 1960s.
The folk-rock music of mid-1960s San Francisco included an exciting visual counterpoint: the trippy designs used to advertise musical lineups at The Fillmore and other local venues. The posters themselves became a celebrated art form, and the era is remembered not just for its psychedelic sounds but for these fascinating and often confounding images, too.
Russ Bertetta attended some of the historic shows they advertised and later collected posters of the era. He will join Rodney Paul to discuss the Big 5, a group of artists whose distinctive designs defined the genre. We’ll see video of the top-billed musicians and watch excerpts of interviews with the artists. We’ll also talk about some contemporary artists who follow in their footsteps.
Rodney has been leading Zoom-based art tours long before shelter-in-place, as a way to share art from a distance. In his tours, he provides information to help viewers mine the artworks for meaning based on their own experiences and perceptions.
