Knowing how many significant events occurred in and around 1967, especially in San Francisco, there is something so resonant about San Francisco’s de Young Museum, residing directly in the middle of Golden Gate Park, the epicenter of the Summer of Love, to now be hosting the exhibition, The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll, through August 20, 2017. It really couldn’t be any other place. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, Juxtapoz is pleased to present a special cover story on the events of 1967, with a cover image from the infamous Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley psychedelic poster for the Grateful Dead.

Sometimes a visual just makes your eyes go popping out of your noggin. And sometimes, a cover image just literally demonstrates how your eyes can go popping out of your noggin. And that is the May 2017 cover image by NYC-based Jamian Juliano-Villani. Jamian makes wonderfully surreal and other-worldly cartoon-esque paintings. Some are crude depictions of sex, some that are just plain hilarious, and others are just imaginative universes. We are hooked.
