A local art exhibit showcasing psychedelic art throughout rock-and-roll history will be free this weekend and includes a unique piece of local music history.

The Psychedelic Art Exchange’s Rock & Roll Poster Show is on exhibit at Gallery at Canal Center (11 Canal Center), a new art gallery that opened earlier this month. The gallery said in a release that entry will be free this weekend.

“View the original concert poster art that defined a generation, including legendary works from the beginning of the revolution in San Francisco to modern era,” the gallery said in the release. “On display will be an incredibly rare local artifact — the 1968 of Janis Joplin/Big Brother Alexandria Arena Roller Rink poster.”

For the exhibit’s upcoming opening weekend, admission will be free. According to the release, the hours this weekend are:

  • Friday, Oct. 21, 4-8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 22, Noon-8 p.m.
  • Sunday Oct. 23, 2-8 p.m.

“These pop culture posters are the intersection of fine art and collectible, illustrating the history of Rock Music — the original American art form,” the gallery said.
