Peter Max

Celebrate the Summer of Love with Peter Max

To honor the fortieth anniversary of the pop music, paisley and patchouli that we associate with the iconic Summer of Love, the de Young museum is featuring works by artist and pop-culture icon Peter Max. It’s hard not to associate Max’s recognizable fauvist-style posters of art with the psychedelic counterculture of the ‘60s. Max famously conveys elaborate and colorful imagery that has been an essential visual component to the movement, blending in with the music of groups like the Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix, and making a permanent imprint on the American cultural landscape.
