San Francisco's revolutionary rock poster movement of the mid-late 1960's produced some of rock n' roll's most colorful, strange and outrageously eclectic posters of its time. Many of the posters were usually meant to advertise a band or dance but the artwork also became a vehicle to fight for civil liberty and personal freedom.
Stanley Mouse and his artistic partner, Alton Kelley, created some of San Francisco's most psychedelic rock posters, "It was wild and wide open and anything went. We just wanted [the posters] to be real visible and real noticeable," says Mouse. "In the old days, there was nobody art-directing, and I think that's why everything came out so amazing," Mouse says. "We could really do whatever we wanted."
