Byrd/Skolnick: A Tale of Two Posters

Both David Edward Byrd and Arnold Skolnick designed posters for the original Woodstock festival. Skolnick’s dove perched on a guitar became iconic; the world may not have been ready for Byrd’s full frontal nude. Their other works include rock posters, posters for Broadway shows, television, movies, impressionistic oil paintings drawn from nature, fine-art compilations, and erotic nudes. Over 150 different pieces, including some of the spin-offs of the classic Woodstock logo, are on display as the Museum at Bethel Woods showcases “Byrd/Skolnick: A Tale of Two Posters” from April 1 through July 22. Go on April 28 or 29 and experience the full glory of the Rock Art Poster Fair.
