The GRAMMY Museum celebrates one of the most pivotal years in music — and the photographer who captured it — with a special limited showing of Jim Marshall’s 1967. Organized by The San Francisco Arts Commission in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of San Francisco’s Summer of Love, the exhibition features a selection of 60 images from the thousands Jim Marshall took while he documented history in the making. This special exhibition will be on display through May 14, 2017.
Shown in chronological order, the exhibition, co-curated by SFAC Galleries Director Meg Shiffler and Amelia Davis of Jim Marshall Photography LLC, features a trove of photographs taken by Marshall that capture the vitality of the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and the multiple scenes and movements that called San Francisco their home. Visitors can follow Marshall as he photographed some of the most important artists of 1967 — from the Grateful Dead’s last concert in the Haight to an album cover for Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix’s historic free concert in the Panhandle. Marshall was dearly loved and respected by musicians of all genres.
