It Happened Here: Posters from the San Francisco Bay Area
May 8, 2013 § Leave a comment
The West has always beckoned to those in search of change. The adventurous came to California to put a stake in land, to chase after gold, and later, in search of personal transformation in the summer of love.
How did the word get out about the promise of the West? Posters provide an answer.
This summer Vintage European Posters will showcase a collection of posters from the San Francisco Bay Area in a show titled “It Happened Here.” The show features posters about the Vietnam War protests, women’s rights, black power, as well as selected works by Berkeley Poster artist David Lance Goines.
Don’t miss out on this collection of local history!
The show runs from May 18 – July 3rd
Come visit us for the show’s opening weekend
