Hippie Tents/1967, each piece approximately 6″x6″, dyed silk with wire armature

This year some of us are recognizing the 50th anniversary of the summer the hippie movement took over San Francisco and Haight/Ashbury, and started the culture war we are still engaged in today.  I was fascinated by the ideas of the time–peace, love, social change–and remember what it was like to live through that colorful era. I use the same craftsperson techniques that were abroad in 1967 and applied them to this piece, a symbol of the visual ideas of that time.
