Title

An Aquarian Exposition Staff Pass

Description

Billed as “3 Days of Peace & Music,” the Woodstock Music and Art Fair took place between August 15 and 18, 1969, in White Lake, New York. A seminal moment in the history of the Sixties-era countercultural movement, an estimated 400,000-500,000 people gathered peacefully in sometimes rainy conditions to listen to musical acts featured at the festival, including Santana, the Grateful Dead, Sly and the Family Stone, The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Joan Baez, Richie Havens, Ravi Shankar, Country Joe McDonald, Joe Cocker, Creedance Clearwater Revival, She Na Na, Blood, Sweat & Tears, The Band, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Johnny Winter and others. The logo on the staff pass, which features a dove perched on top of a guitar bridge, was designed by graphic artist, Arnold Skolnick.

These passes were Roz Payne's. Roz was good friends with many of the organizers of the Woodstock music festival.
