In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Summer of Love, we look back at the cultural movements and events that led up to this transformative moment in California history. Tens of thousands of disaffected young people converged in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district in the summer of 1967 and captured the attention of the world. The exhibition explores the cultural context—from the Beat poets to the experimental art scene—that made San Francisco a magnet for hippies and the center of a social revolution that rippled across the country. Guest Curator Dennis McNally brings together rarely seen photographs and ephemera to tell the story of how the Summer of Love came to be.
