San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

Probably no other artist is more associated with “the look” of the 1960s than Peter Max. Starting Friday, the world-renowned artist’s works will be on display at the de Young Museum in conjunction with the community celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love.

“Peter Max and the Summer of Love” features 50 works by Max. The show, which runs through Oct. 28, is the second hosted by the museum.

His first solo show, “The World of Peter Max,” opened at the de Young in 1970, eventually traveling to 46 U.S. venues. The prolific pop art icon continues to create colorful paintings and posters, including the official poster and stage backdrop for the Summer of Love anniversary concert in Golden Gate Park. That free show is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday in Speedway Meadow.

Meanwhile, Max will give a lecture and sign books at 7 p.m. Friday in the Koret Auditorium at the de Young, 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, Golden Gate Park.
