"Revolution is an art, and like all arts, it has its laws.” Leon Trotsky
Or maybe art should have no laws. The 1960s explosion of psychedelic art was a celebration of music & artistic expression, as well as human rights, a sustainable environment, and a peaceful planet and as a protest against an elitist art culture and mainstream ideology. Now, sixty years since that cultural revolution began, the bold spirit of its aesthetic wave and youth uprising is recycling. The New Revolution Art Revelation is an exhibition of local art inspired by the San Francisco music scene and the colorful cultural outrage of the 1960s, reinterpreted for a new millennium. Motivated by the energy in the artwork of deadheads, hippies, and the 60’s psychedelic youth culture, UNCG honors the best of our local pop, underground, comic, colorful, and artistic insurgency.
