A few weeks ago, I shared pictures of signs stenciled on the pathways around the de Young Museum in honor of their The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock and Roll exhibit. It’s been 50 years since that summer in 1967 when counterculture activists, artists, musicians and hippies were drawn to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.
The faux street signs adorning lampposts outside of the deYoung illustrate the intersection of past socio-political movements with those of the present. Hippie meets hipster, Civil Rights crosses Black Lives Matter, and Free Love meets Marriage Equality.
