Sixties psychedelia: Rock posters from the Paul Maurer Collection

National Art Institute of Minneapolis invites you to visit the exhibition "Sixties Psychedelia: Rock Posters from the Paul Maurer Collection".

In 2019, Minneapolis collector Paul Maurer donated over 200 concert posters to the museum's permanent collection. Most are from the "golden age" of psychedelic poster design (1966-69). The exhibit features striking psychedelic works created by leading concert poster designers of the time, including Rick Griffin, Alton Kelly, Victor Moscoso, Stanley Mouse, Wes Wilson, and Bob Freed.

The 1960s marked a tumultuous period in the social, political and cultural history of the United States: countercultural youth embraced progressive idealism, favoured freedom of sexual expression and experimented with mind-altering hallucinogens. Experimental forms of music and the visual arts flourished among the movement's adherents.

Prepared according to the materials of the website of the National Art Institute of Minneapolis.
