Cinemateque 16, Los Angeles, CA 1/1/69
This poster was created by Rick Griffin in 1969 for Thursday night gatherings of the “Hog Farmers” at Cinemateque 16 on Sunset Boulevard. The Hog Farm is an organization considered to be America’s longest-running hippie commune. With beginnings as an actual collective hog farm in Tujunga, California, the group—founded in the 1960s by peace activist and clown Wavy Gravy—evolved into a “mobile, hallucination-extended family,” active internationally in both music and politics. The Hog Farm is still in existence today, with headquarters in Berkeley, California. It operates a 200-acre farm in Laytonville, California known as Black Oak Ranch, which is also home to Wavy Gravy’s performing arts camp for children—Camp Winnarainbow.
The original poster was printed on thin white stock and measures approximately 20 ¼" x 24 ¾. The can in the center reads "Royal Cream Pudding".
The second print poster was printed on thin white stock and measures 20 ⅜" x 29". These are marked as the European Limited Edition and are a numbered edition of 3000 pieces. The can in the center reads "Royal Bindweed Venom".
