Arnold Skolnik's Poster for The Woodstock '69 Festival

 

The Official 1969Woodstock Festival Poster was never copyrighted by Artist Arnold Skolnick

 

The concept for the poster was almost accidental as he 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.
