Rare Janis Joplin “The Ark” Poster

Rare Janis Joplin “The Ark” Poster

Gloriously groovy poster for an October 6, 1967 “dance concert” highlighted by Janis Joplin’s band Big Brother and the Holding Company at Sausalito’s The Ark, a favorite stop for the Bay Area’s legion of acid-rock bands. The poster, which showed up in stores and head shops, reflects the days of “bud and blotto” with a neon orange and purple rendering of a nubile nymph getting her groove on under a mass of swirling hair intermingling with the names of the bands, with Big Brother taking precedence on the upper left corner above Jack & The Ripper. At least 4 posters done in this style are known to exist for Joplin gigs at The Ark, and this may be the best. 16 x 21” and EX w/nearly invisible corner damage. Stand back a bit and it’ll look perfect, especially if you inhale. Mounted on linen with EXS-MT appearance.
