The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll commemorates an “only in San Francisco” social and aesthetic movement, and will remind museum visitors that in a time of international upheaval, the city played a vital role in changing society and amplifying the pulse of the nation.

The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll will be an exhilarating exhibition of iconic rock posters, photographs, interactive music and light shows, costumes and textiles, ephemera, and avant-garde films.

A 50th anniversary celebration of the adventurous and colorful counterculture that blossomed in the years surrounding the legendary San Francisco summer of 1967, the exhibition will present more than 300 significant cultural artifacts of the time, including almost 150 objects from the Fine Arts Museums’ extensive permanent holdings, supplemented by key, iconic loans.

Funding for this program, at least in part, is made available by the Older Americans Act, administered locally by the Marin Department of Health and Human Services, Aging and Adult Services.

Senior Lunch
This very popular program has been operating since February 2009 and now takes place each Monday and Thursday from 12:00 pm-2:00pm. We have delicious well-balanced meals brought in from the kitchens of Good Earth Natural Foods with new menus every week. Some of the most popular meals are taco day, eggplant Parmesan, and barbecued chicken. All the main courses have great sides and salads and fresh fruit. It’s a great event for a healthy meal and good conversation with neighbors and friends. Suggested donation for seniors is $3.00 a meal and $6.00 for others.

During lunch, there are often additional activities offered such as health fairs, book readings, exercise classes and more. There are weekly visits from West Marin Senior Services and monthly visits from a County Health Nurse as well educational material always present to help to address senior issues. As with all our programming this is not an exclusive group but open to all from all generations.
