Flower Child: Contemporary Artwork Inspired by San Francisco’s Summer of Love
This August (2017) will mark the 50 year anniversary of San Francisco’s infamous Summer of Love. This event was highlighted by the largest gathering of Hippies (or Flower Children), the rise of 60’s music legends, and the widespread use of psychedelic drugs, all culminating in the summer of 1967 in the city’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. The late 60s marked the beginning of the counterculture movement that would grow to attract and give rise to the great artists, activists, writers, freethinkers of the 20th century.
The entire city of San Francisco will be celebrating this landmark year with special programs, press coverage, local attention, and events throughout the summer. Modern Eden Gallery is joining in on the festivities with a presentation of artwork from artists from all over the world to seek inspiration from The Summer of Love.
