Fifty years ago, the epicenter of counterculture, the San Francisco neighborhood Haight-Ashbury, attracted young people by the thousands. Though an eclectic group, they often shared similar beliefs: experimentation, a rejection of consumerist values, peace, and a general opposition toward the Vietnam War. They also shared a passion for music. The Summer of Love Turns 50 exhibition will celebrate a time when musicians were looked to as a collective mouthpiece for a generation. Visitors can experience rarely seen artifacts including guitars and outfits, iconic posters, and artwork.
