During an era of complex psychedelic rock posters, the original Woodstock poster received negative feedback for its over the top, trippy design. In 1969, the organizers of Woodstock called in Arnold Skolnick, a New York graphic designer at the time, to create a replacement piece. He began designing with simplicity in mind. A white bird perched on a blue and green guitar was enough for him to get the point across. He wanted people who could only get a glimpse of the poster to know exactly what the festival was about. While he was just told to come up with a poster for a 3 day music festival, he added “3 Days of Peace and Music” Woodstock’s now famous mantra. This iconic piece has become a part of music history that represents everything Woodstock stood for.
