“Summer of Love: 50 Years”

record VW Bug v1 small

Dean of University Libraries Curtis Kendrick invites the campus and greater community to get “far out” and “groovy” at our new exhibit, “Summer of Love: 50 Years.”

The exhibit showcases items from our Center for the Study of the 1960s collection that recall an important year in a tumultuous decade.

Viewers will get a glimpse into the past at the social, cultural and political movements that started or were advanced during the year of 1967.

The exhibit features stunning rock concert poster art; books on Psychedelic art and the impact the movement still has on contemporary artists; and books on social activism of the late sixties and how those movements are still alive today.

In Special Collections, the exhibit will feature rare materials from the Libraries’ University Archives that show facets of Binghamton University campus life: activism, academics, the social scene, and groups and clubs. Go back in time and gain an archival perspective of what was happening at the University back in the day.
