We created this large scale psychedelic backdrop for The Owsley Stanley Foundation’s benefit at the Great American Music Hall. The evening featured greats such as Hot Tuna, Steve Kimock, Roger McNamee and Rolling Stones manager, Sam Cutler. The Owsley Stanley Foundation seeks to preserve The Bear’s legacy, by protecting and rereleasing his recordings. It’s a mission that is close to our heart, and we jumped at the chance to support the project.
We started with an old image of the wall of sound taken by Richard Pechner, added some of Bear’s art, and a little bit of our own magic. The end result was a 13 panel 600 square foot tribute to The Wall of Sound that the foundation will be able to use for years to come.
