On May 15, 2017, in Events, by Ben Marks

If you know a budding young artist who lives in Marin County and is between the ages of 12 and 18, please let them know about the upcoming Youth Poster Concert, produced by Bruce Burtch, in partnership with Riley Street Art Supply, Haight Street Art Center, and TRPS.

The contest kicks off on May 27 with a free art poster workshop at Riley Street in San Rafael, led by rock-poster artist John Mavroudis. Submissions are accepted from August 1 through August 15, and winners in four categories and two age groups will be displayed at Riley Street in September and October. Winners will also see their work in the pages of the Pacific Sun.

Summer of Love Website Goes Live

On January 21, 2017, in Events, News, by Ben Marks

“Jim Marshall’s 1967,” January 26 – June 17, 2017, San Francisco City Hall.

Looking for a convenient place to keep track of all of the events being planned for the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love? Check out summerof.love, a recently launched website managed by San Francisco Travel and the California Historical Society. One upcoming event that caught our eye is “Jim Marshall’s 1967,” which runs from January 26 to June 17 at San Francisco City Hall. The show will feature 80 photographs (including the one above of Jimi Hendrix performing in Golden Gate Park on June 25) taken by the great rock photographer during 1967. While there’s a lot on summerof.love now, the site promises to be updated regularly as dates are firmed up for events throughout the year. For example, the Hall of Flowers has just been booked for October 28 for our annual Festival of Rock Posters. That’ll be on the site soon, but you heard it here first!
