Flower Child: Art Inspired by San Francisco’s Summer of Love @ Modern Eden Gallery

Flower Child ~ often used in description with the ideals and universal movements of peace, belonging, and free love.

In the summer of 1967, nearly 100,000 people gathered at Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco, in commemoration of their generation’s non-conformist revolution and an era of harmony.  This iconic rock festival-hippy phenomenon steeped in psychogenic stupor symbolizes the pinnacle of what is widely recognized as “hippie culture”. On Saturday, August 12, 2017, join Modern Eden Gallery in the celebration of Flower Child, a new group exhibition inspired by that long, hot Summer of Love.

Press Release:

This upcoming 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.
