Design in Revolution: A 1960s Odyssey

February 3–September 9, 2018

The art of counterculture

From Pop Art and psychedelia to the civil rights and anti-war movements, the 1960s was a decade of liberation—and of great loss. See how designers, artists, and architects responded to the tumultuous period that still looms large in the American imagination. Highlights include the Museum's surprising collection of vintage rock ‘n' roll posters and a series of powerful images of Martin Luther King Jr.
