Original 1st printing extra large 40 x 26&1/4" silkscreen concert poster for the Fall 1971 schedule of concerts held at John M. Greene Hall on the campus of Smith College in Northampton, MA. Shows listed include Frank Zappa and the Mothers (10/9/1971), Rare Earth (11/5/1971) and Roberta Flack (12/10/1971).
Extra-thick flat stock silkscreened poster (screened with heavy enamel ink on extra-thick textured oak tag stock) is in good/decent (B/B-) condition; there is a fairly heavy amount of edge wear along the outer (mostly upper and lower) margins, including several small to medium-sized edge tears and small-to-medium-sized "nips", ranging in size from 1/8" to 1&1/2-2", along with several small stress creases/handling dings scattered throughout the piece, a slight puncture/tear over the "ta" of "Roberta" and other tiny marks/dings/zits here and there, but still in very decent shape overall, especially considering the massive size.
Only one of these I've EVER seen, likely printed by a student in the campus art department. A monster display piece with a fantastic psychedelic-style graphic.
