The Human Be-in is
generally considered by most experts to be THE seminal event in the
hippie/counter culture movement. It was held at Golden Gate Park in
San Francisco, and featured "All San Francisco Rock Bands" (Grateful Dead,
Big Brother, Country Joe, Quicksilver, etc.), as well as Timothy Leary,
Allen Ginsberg & Jerry Rubin. Three different artists came up with
artwork for the posters and handbills used to promote the event.
This one, designed by Rick Griffin, is by far the most popular among
collectors. This was Rick's second piece of psychedelic artwork, and
the one that really put him on the map.
