MacLean drew from diverse cultural imagery with dancing meso-american Indian totems on BG073. The bill was another interesting, six day menu of blues and rock offerings.

Print Variations

The postcard was printed once before the concert and measures 4 1/2" x 7".

There were also some pre-concert double-sized mailers that were conjoined with the BG072 image (see BG072/073). They measure 4 1/2" x 14".

About Bonnie MacLean

During the early days of the Fillmore, MacLean was the most "present" member of the staff. She collected tickets, passed out handbills, blew up balloons and counted money for Fillmore productions. Impressed with her lettering skill on the upcoming attractions chalkboards, Bill Graham surprised her with an easel and art supplies for Christmas, 1967, and MacLean's poster artist career was launched. Untrained in graphic arts, MacLean's early style evolved into ornate, Medieval-Gothic designs. Faces in her posters wore trance-like stares, steady and serene, and evoke the detached spirituality of the sixties.
