The Art of Consciousness

New Haight Center Celebrates Poster Art

Psychedelic poster exhibit, The Art of Consciousness, opens on Saturday, July 1, at the Haight Street Art Center in San Francisco, CA.

Famous graphic artist Stanley Mouse walked past the giant bronze rabbit at the entrance to the new Haight Street Art Center with a poster under his arm for inspiration.

He came to this full-service facility in the old UC Extension to reimagine his famous design for “A Gathering of the Tribes for a Human Be-In” into the first poster to be created and exhibited here. Mouse uncluttered the image of a bearded Hindu with a third eye, gave it a new title, “The Art of Consciousness,” and updated it from Jan. 14, 1967, to July to September 2017.
