The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll is currently on display at the de Young Museum in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. If given the opportunity, I highly recommend checking it out! It’s groovy. 😉 Today’s post shows off what I wore to see this celebration of the 50th anniversary of the legendary San Francisco summer of 1967.
In the mid-1960s, artists, activists, writers, and musicians converged on Haight-Ashbury with hopes of creating a new social paradigm. By 1967, the neighborhood would attract as many as 100,000 young people from all over the nation. The neighborhood became ground zero for their activities, and nearby Golden Gate Park their playground.
Vibrant rock posters, photographs, interactive light shows, costumes, textiles, music, and avant-garde films are all apart of this intoxicating exhibition. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire exhibit, but I found the clothing and posters to be especially fascinating.
One of the highlights of the exhibit was Bill Ham’s Kinetic Light Painting. This immersive room offered shag-bean bag chairs for you to recline in and enjoy the show.
The day we explored this exhibit was cloudy and chilly, typical for a San Francisco summer. To dress for the weather and ensure my comfort while being indoors, I wore tights with a short-sleeve wrap dress. I also threw on a lightweight black trench coat and booties.
My convertible backpack (it can also be used as a crossbody or shoulder bag) held everything my daughter and I might need during our museum visit.
