GOD GROWS HIS OWN By Mari Tepper Original 1967 Screen Print on Heavy Paper Square Format: 22 1/8 Wide x 22 1/4 High
GOOD PLUS Condition: some wear, creases from handling, a 1/4" edge tear, upper left corner scraped, bottom right corner has 3 BB sized holes, surface scraping here and there and on the back (from a long gone insect), light age-toning/foxing, the back has some masking tape ghosts and abrasions, overall this original 1967 poster is solid, bright and clean and the colors remain very vivid and bright. It would look fabulous framed. A unique early piece.
A beautiful and evocative image that most perfectly embodies and describes the amazing ethos of the Haight Ashbury in 1967. Artist Mari Tepper (b. 1948) born in the Haight, she designed this poster when she was only 19 years old. Mari also created iconic concert posters for Bill Graham and many other SF cultural and sociopolitical happenings of the day, but because she was a young woman in 1967, her artwork was never popularized - unlike her male colleagues - until recently.
