1967 San Francisco Through Jim Marshall’s Lens

SF City Hall Special Photography Exhibition

Join us as we explore 89 stunning photos capturing life in and around San Francisco during 1967, the year of the Summer Of Love. Learn insightful historical perspective on the subject matter and context as we interview Amelia Davis, who was Jim Marshall’s assistant for the last 15 years of his life; Meg Shiffler, the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery Director; and Anthea Hartig, Executive Director of the California Historical Society. Countercultural seeds planted in the 60’s are obviously blossoming now, as we see a wave of love celebrations all over the world.

“What Jim was able to do was capture moments of history that will never happen again. These are very important pieces San Francisco history, as well as the world.” – Amelia Davis, Jim Marshall Photography LLC

The exhibition is in the basement of San Francisco City Hall, and is open M-F 8am-8pm for everyone to enjoy free of charge!
