The Summer of Love 1967

After our visit of a few hours to Sacramento we arrived in San Francisco.
Our weather experience in San Francisco gives mostly cloudy or even misty weather in the morning. At the end morning or early in the afternoon the sun breaks though. The closer you are to the pacific the bigger the change for clouds. Further inland the change for sunshine increases exponential.
With this experience in mind and a confirmation from the weather forecast we planned ourt museum visits in the morning starting the first day with “THE YOUNG”. Number 95 on the list of “The Best Museums in the world”. I think it deserves an higher ranking.

Today’s pictures gives an impression of the exhibition “The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll”.
A fascinating exposition full of nostalgia from the time I was about 20. A promenade full of almost forgotten memories.

The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll was an exhilarating exhibition of iconic rock posters, photographs, interactive music and light shows, costumes and textiles, ephemera, and avant-garde films. A 50th anniversary celebration of the adventurous and colorful counterculture that blossomed in the years surrounding the legendary San Francisco summer of 1967, the exhibition presented more than 300 significant cultural artifacts of the time, including almost 150 objects from the Fine Arts Museums’ extensive permanent holdings, supplemented by key, iconic loans.
The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll commemorates an “only in San Francisco” social and aesthetic movement, and will remind museum visitors that in a time of international upheaval, the city played a vital role in changing society and amplifying the pulse of the nation.
