 Original 8&1/2 x 11" concert/event flyer for a "Celebration of Creativity and Mixed-Media Protest Exhibit", a Yippie-sponsored gathering held at the  Chicago (IL) Coliseum on 8/27/1968, featuring appearances by Phil Ochs, Dick Gregory, the Fugs, Allen Ginsburg, Nazz (with Todd Rundgren), Pete Seeger and the Holocaust No-Dance Band. (*possibly cancelled, I could not find any other references to the event anywhere)

 Designer unknown/not credited, thin flat stock mimeographed event flyer is in used (B-) condition; there are a number of semi-pronounced folds/bends, tape stains along the top/bottom margins, handling wear/creasing, edge/corner-tip wear... definitely a used/worn example, but it's the ONLY one I have ever seen. 

 Very strange-looking artifact for an event that coincided (or was to coincide) with the '68 Democratic Convention in Chicago... pretty interesting historical document.
