The Gathering of the Tribes is one of Rick Griffin’s earliest, best, and most historically important pieces. The artwork is featured in The Art of Rock, plate # 2.215. The Human Be-In was originally conceived as an opportunity for the San Francisco Bohemians and Berkeley radicals to join forces in celebration of their respective counter culture ideals. The Stage was taken by the major San Francisco bands of the day, as well as Psychedelic advocates, political radicals, beat writers and spiritualists.  

 

Key figures included Tim Leary, Ram Dass, Allan Ginsburg and Jerry Rubin who spoke to the gathering of 30,000. The Be-in was a true illustration of the ideals of the Haight and probably the last true gathering before the innocence of the culture would be lost. Due to the unsurpassed historical significance of this poster and the incredible Rick Griffin design -- Griffin's very FIRST concert poster--, this poster always has and always will be considered one of the most important and desirable concert posters ever created. The worldwide demand has always overwhelmed the tiny available supply, creating a Blue Chip Classic Rarity that always becomes the highlight of any collection in which it resides.

 

Many collectors believe that posters graded 8.5 by CGC represent the best value in the marketplace today. See our blog dated 1/31/18 to learn why demand is currently skyrocketing.
