“San Francisco really had a lot of different things going on. We had LSD, which gave people a whole different slant on things.” Wes Wilson
The Joint Show. Art Venues? Party? Gatherings? Rick Griffin, Victor Moscoso, Kelly Mouse, Wes Wilson are the main artists involved at the famous Joint Shows. The Billboards are designed by them on each happening. Counterculture and psychedelic hippie art at its best.
The fact that concert promoters settled on an advertising strategy based on posters and handbills rather than billboards, television spots, or newspaper magazines says something about their intended audience. Posters attracted the attention of pedestrians and neighborhood residents. Tacked on telephone poles and pasted in shop windows, posters were an ideal medium for the message, assuming of course, that they remained posted. These graphic artworks were eagerly sought by aficionados and often disappeared within hours of their posting.
Posters could also be found in local head, music, and poster shops or obtained straight from the source at the venue. (taken from)
