The art of the West often gets pegged as a celebration of cowboys and cow skulls, but Colorado curators Elissa Aurther and Adam Lerner are on a mission to bring to light another major movement and aesthetic founded this side of the Mississippi.
The countercultural movement thrived during the 1960s and ‘70s through the work of artists who strayed from stereogypes. In video, drawing, photography, installation, and ephemera, these artists created what is now widely known as psychedelic art (though Aurther and Lerner would argue the work spans a much wider range), which continues to influence contemporary art and culture.
