Byers-Evans House Gallery

Rock Posters from Denver’s Family Dog

February 6th - May 10th, 2015

Opening Friday, February 6, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. 

The February, March, and April show in the Byers-Evans House Gallery will feature an exhibition of original rock posters from Denver’s Family Dog. The Family Dog, 1967-68, was a clone of Chet Helms’ iconic San Francisco music and dance hall, the Avalon. It was Denver's venue for the best known bands of the era, featuring concerts by the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, and Van Morrison. All were promoted by poster art and hand bills. The original poster art is courtesy of long time collector and dealer Mike Storiem. 

Photographs of the bands by Lisa Law will also be on display. Lisa Law’s career as a photographer began in the early 1960s. With her new Honeywell Pentax camera in hand and working as an assistant to The Kingston Trio manager Frank Werber, Lisa captured the genesis of the 1960s and her passion for photography grew into a profession.


Open Monday–Saturday 10 am– 4 pm.
