OPENING RECEPTION August 9  |  5 to 8 pm

“This project brings together images and photographers from Woodstock and asks us to consider the legacy of this festival that came to symbolize the tumultuous 1960s.”

– Julie Mulvihill, Humanities Kansas Executive Director

Woodstock embodies the sixties. Honoring the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, Back To The Garden is an intimate look at the people who were there. In 1969, the United States was grappling with cultural conflict that was revolutionizing society, the effects of which are still felt today. Featuring photographs with a ground-level view, Back to Garden highlights the people, moments, and experiences of a cultural phenomenon that would define an era.

Funding for this program is provided by Humanities Kansas, a nonprofit cultural organization that connects communities with history, traditions, and ideas to strengthen civic life.
