Personally decorated clothing of the counter-culture burst on the American psyche in 1967, a year that saw civil unrest, political and social activism, and San Francisco’s legendary “Summer of Love.” In addition to spiritual and lifestyle explorations, the counter-culture bloomed in the arts, and wildly inventive fashion grew into an astonishing national art-to-wear movement. Sophisticated artistry, originality, and craftsmanship, combined with functionality in vibrant one-of-a-kind garments. “Art We Wear” presents examples of coastal Marin and Bay Area wearable art and related ephemera as it evolved through our shifting culture from the 1960’s to today.
On view June 17 – August 13. Museum Hours: Fridays 1-5 PM, Saturdays & Sundays 12- 5 PM, and by appointment.
