Summer of Love: 50 Years Exhibit Opening Reception

Get “far out” & “groovy” as Dean Curtis Kendrick kicks off the "Summer of Love" exhibit at a special opening event, from 4-5 p.m. Thursday, May 11 in Bartle Library.

The new exhibit showcases items from our Center for the Study of the 1960s collection that recall an important year in a tumultuous decade, offering glimpse into the social, cultural and political movements that were starting and already underway in the year 1967. Also featured: stunning rock concert poster art, and books on psychedelic art and activism that are relevant and impactful to this day.

Visitors can gain an archival perspective of Binghamton University in the sixties in Special Collections, where rare materials from the University's Archives reflect facets of campus life: activism, academics, the social scene, and groups and clubs.

Summer of Love: 50 Years exhibit is on view from May 11–October 9, 2017 in the Glenn G. Bartle Library's second floor mezzanine and Special Collections Department (North Reading Room).
