<p>A Hampden gallery proves hippie posters are works of art.</p>
Mesmerized, Glen Trosch gazed at—and on some level into—a Grateful Dead concert poster.
To Trosch, then a 20-year-old Baltimorean in San Francisco to see his favorite band perform on New Year’s Eve 1983, it was an artistic revelation, a two-dimensional window into the three-dimensional world of psychedelic drugs and rock and roll.
He was blown away.
“The design, the color, the visualization—it turned me on,” says Trosch, now 48 with a touch of gray in his black hair. “It still does.”
