Discover the counterculture of the 1960s and 70s in this comprehensive exhibition at the Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd Street. Part of a citywide celebration of the 1960s, this exhibition explores the breadth and significance of this pivotal era—from communal living and forays into expanded consciousness to tensions around race, politics, sexuality, and the environment. Items on display, drawn exclusively from the Library’s collections, include Timothy Leary’s notes on acid trips, footage of the Woodstock music festival, and posters used in protest against the Vietnam War.
