The original Arnold Skolnick poster as a magnet.
Arnold Skolnick's poster design for the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair was immediately iconic, creating a brand identity for the rock festival. Knowing what the legendary festival became it is wonderful to read the details on what it was envisioned to be on the poster. They include the lineup as originally planned plus the below information;
Paintings and sculptures on trees, on grass, surrounded by the Hudson valley, will be displayed. Would be artists, ghetto artists and accomplished artists will be glad to discuss their work, or the unspoiled splendor of the surroundings, or anything else that might be on your mind...
If you like creative knickknacks and old junk you'll love roaming around our bazaar. You'll see imaginative leather, ceramic, bead and silver creations, as well as Zodiac Charts, camp clothes, and worn out shoes...
There will be cokes and hotdogs and dozens of curious food and fruit combinations to experiment with.
HUNDREDS OF ACRES TO ROAM ON:
Walk around for three days without seeing a skyscraper or a traffic light. Fly a kite, sun yourself. Cook your own food and breathe unspoiled air. Camp out: water and restrooms will be supplied. Tents and camping equipment will be available at the Camp Store. Poster measures 24x36 inches, unframed.
