Arnold Skolnik's Poster
for The Woodstock '69 Festival

The concept for the poster was almost accidental as Arnold Skolnik watched his child cutting and tearing paper art while contemplating a design.   He then cut the dove from the scraps and created the poster almost instantly.  Time was of the essence since the location of the venue had changed to Bethel, at Max Yasgur's farm.   The poster listed all of the performers and the schedule for the three days.
