“Revolution is an art, and like all arts, it has its laws.” Leon Trotsky
Or maybe art should have no laws. The 1960s youth art was a celebration of human rights, a sustainable environment, and a peaceful planet as well as a protest against an elitist art culture and mainstream ideology. Now, sixty years since that cultural revolution began, the bold spirit of its aesthetic wave and youth uprising is recycling. Local artists are invited to create sixties inspired colorful, youthful, psychedelic, or revolutionary art reinterpreted for a new millennium and to submit their inspired work to the Psychedelic, Counter-Culture Art Exhibition for exhibition in the UNCG Greensboro Project Space in February. We are looking for work with the energy of artwork by deadheads, other hippies, comic artists such as R. Crumb, Grateful Dead musician Jerry Garcia, San Francisco poster art, and the 60’s youth driven culture. UNCG’s Psychedelic, Counter-Culture Art Exhibition wants to honor the best of our local pop, underground, comic, colorful, and artistic outrage.
