This poster exhibits a colorful, hand drawn SIGNATURE in ink markers by the late great Ken Kesey, dated 1993! 

 

We have never auctioned an example of this 1977 poster ever before until NOW! Over ten years prior, Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters held a series of LSD fueled, multi media happenings featuring the music of the Grateful Dead and chronicled in Tom Wolfe's Electric Kool Aid Acid Tests. These HISTORIC events provided the initial spark that led to a full scale counter-culture revolution that transformed our world forever! 

 

Fast forwarding over a decade later, here we have a seldom seen poster that was produced on glossy, medium cardboard stock to advertise The 2nd Annual Perennial Poetic Hoohaw, held at Macarthur Court, University of Oregon in Eugene on May 7th, 1977. The event featured readings by Ken Kesey, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Jack Micheline, Peter Orlovsky, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, as well as musical performances.

 

This original poster exhibits an image from the "Split In The Ocean" series. Best of all, it's SIGNED with multiple colored markers by the legendary Ken Kesey at the top of the poster! More and more collectors are coming into the fold with the knowledge that artist signatures add a whole other dimension to their treasures. Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
