Description

Stanley Mouse received his formal training at Detroit’s School for the Society of Arts and Crafts until he dropped out to create rock posters in San Francisco during the war time era of social revolution, political passion, and musical innovation of the 1960’s. It was during this time that he would meet fellow artist, Alton Kelley. The two would collaborate on numerous projects over the course of 15 years. Said to have, “changed the course of advertising art forever” the two created  some of the most well known images, the ZigZag cigarette rolling papers and the Grateful Dead skeleton and roses motif.

Stanley Mouse designed his art with American pop-art and Art Nouveau in mind. His distinct style would attract many notable musicians to hire him to create their album covers as well as posters. Some of these musicians included Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Steve Miller, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, and many more. He has been honored for many of his works and his posters have shown in museums around the world, to name a few, The Louvre, The Boston Museum, The Tokyo Museum of Modern Art, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and The Tate Museum in Liverpool.

The First Annual Cosmic Car Show poster, the event was held on September 2, 1967 to benefit the Delano Grape Strikers. Performers included: Charlie Musslewhite’s South Side Sound System, Mt. Rushmore, Mother Earth, Second Coming, Melvin Q, AAA and Pyewacket
