This poster has been signed by the artist Stanley Mouse.
The Human Be-in was perhaps “the” culminating event of the San Francisco Psychedelic scene and this seminal event just enjoyed it’s 50th Anniversary on January 14 2017. As such this poster holds tremendous historical importance. Adding to it’s 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 as well as 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.
