Music, Love & Flowers prepares to strike the stage – January 21st.

It’s been eight months since the Museum of Monterey’s extraordinary tribute to the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival was debuted to wild acclaim. And in that time tens of thousands of visitors—some with tears in their eyes and smiles in their hearts—browsed through the stellar exhibit, reliving those days of glory and helping introduce a new generation to a watershed moment in the musical and societal history of the country.

And somewhat poetically, in December 2012 the world lost one of the great musical visionaries and a performing highlight of the Monterey Pop Festival: Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar passed away at age 92 at home near San Diego, a man famous not only for bringing the traditional “raga” style music of his country to the forefront of world culture but also for mentoring legions of artists over five decades, most notably Beatle George Harrison.

On January 20 th , Music, Love and Flowers goes the way of the 60s, as some of the most profound figures of the era file through our doors to take repossession of the myriad jewels they so graciously donated for the exhibit. Gone will be Janis Joplin’s table, Jefferson Airplane’s amps and dozens of original concert posters, books, photographs and memorabilia.

Don’t miss your last chance to step into the past and feel the love. Peace!
