Many collectors believe this is one of the great pieces of psychedelic-era art EVER to be created. The Human Be-in was perhaps “the” culminating event of the San Francisco Psychedelic scene" and this seminal event just enjoyed its 55th Anniversary on January 14, 2022. As such this poster holds tremendous historical importance. Adding to its appeal is the fact that it was designed by two of the most legendary artists of all time Stanley Mouse and the late Alton Kelley.


This happening included all of the major figures of the day. The Be-in was originally conceived as an opportunity for the San Francisco Bohemians and Berkeley radicals to join forces in celebration of their respective counter-culture ideals. The major San Francisco bands of the day and Psychedelic advocates political radicals beat writers and spiritualists took the stage. Key figures of the era like Tim Leary Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) Allan Ginsburg and Jerry Rubin spoke to the gathering of 30 000. The Be-in was a true illustration of the ideals of the Haight and probably the last true gathering before the innocence of the culture would be lost. This poster features incredible eye appeal!
