Join TAC for an exploration of the The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll, a special exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the adventurous and colorful counterculture that blossomed in the years surrounding the legendary San Francisco summer of 1967. The day begins with a tour led by the exhibition’s co-curator, Jill D’Alessandro, Curator of Costume and Textile Arts. The exhibition presents more than 300 significant cultural artifacts of the time, including fantastic costumes and textiles using a range of techniques and materials by designers such as Birgitta Bjerke, aka 100% Birgitta; Mickey McGowan, aka the Apple Cobbler; Burray Olson; and Jeanne Rose. After a catered luncheon in the de Young Café, we will go behind the scenes to see additional designs from this pivotal moment in Bay Area history, now housed the Museums’ collection. The day concludes with free time to explore the Museums’ galleries, including the Textile Arts department’s complementary exhibition, Beyond the Surface: Worldwide Embroidery Traditions.
