Summer of Love 50 -- Zeitgeist, Market Street -- June 23, 2017

The San Francisco Arts Commission ( has set up a series of posters by artist Deborah Aschheim.  "The Zeitgeist" is part of a larger series for the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love.  The posters in The Zeitgeist represent people involved in the Spring Mobilization against the War in Vietnam on 15-April-1967.

Vanguard was founded by a group of gay and transgender young people to fight against discrimination.  Their 1966 Market Street cleanup referred to the sweeps conducted by the police against homeless young people.  I like the brooms.
