Lights/Visuals by Single Wing Turquoise Bird. This was acquired at an estate sale in Redondo Beach, California. Single Wing Turquoise Bird formed in 1968 to create light shows at the Shrine Auditorium for the likes of Cream. The experimental arts collective devised baroque visual pastiches of ancient and modern art rooted firmly in the psychedelic vocabulary of the time. Van Hamersvelds Pinnacle Hendrix poster is one of the most recognizable and graphically powerful designs of the 1960s, and a quintessential expression of the psychedelic confluence of art, music and culture. The poster was originally created to promote Jimi Hendrixs February 1968 concert at. Shrine Auditorium, part of the Pinnacle concert series organized by Van Hamersveld and the Single Wing Turquoise Bird lightshow group.
Though the Pinnacle concerts spanned less than a year, from November -67 to September 68, they included such illustrious acts as the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Cream, Traffic, the Velvet Underground, The Who, Pink Floyd and of course Hendrix, with Van Hamersveld designing posters for every event. The original Pinnacle Hendrix poster was printed in a run of 2000 and distributed to head shops and bookstores around. And the nearby beach communities. If the box is over 12, the cost goes up.
