This huge collage of Woodstock photos was created by Bruce Gowens right after the event and published in 1969. There was also a version made with dark green lettering instead of the pink seen here. These posters were printed on thin paper and were easily damaged or ripped and very few are left, although it is impossible to know how many. We had this one backed with archival linen to stabilize and protect it before framing it with Museum Glass.
Woodstock was billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music". It was held at Max Yasgur's farm in the Catskills near the hamlet of White Lake in the town of Bethel, New York, from August 15 to August 18, 1969. During the sometimes rainy weekend, thirty-three acts performed outdoors in front of 500,000 concert-goers. It is widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history. Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.
