Be-In Berkeley for the 50th Summer of Love

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Bay Area's historic "Summer of Love." 

The spring and summer of 1967 brought nearly 100,000 outsiders, activists, and dreamers to Berkeley and the SF Bay Area. These young people traveled far and wide to join a community of artists, musicians, poets, and radicals who would change the world through music and art; launching the natural and organic foods movement; protesting war with peace and love; and ushering in an era of greater connectivity.

There are a number of fun and festive ways to engage with and enjoy Berkeley's Summer of Love.

                                                                                                                                                   

  

Hippie Modernism: The Stuggle for Utopia           

Fifty years after the Summer of Love, the counterculture's legacy is as provocative as ever. BAMPFA's Hippie Modernism is the first comprehensive exploration of the counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s and its impact on global art, architecture, and design. In the counterculture one can see early stirrings of the tech revolution and ecological consciousness, as well as powerful expressions of the desire for peace and social justice.  Through May 21, 2017.
