Bread & Roses Sponsors Exhibit "Marin's Rock Art Scene" at MarinMOCA

September 12, 2020

Bread & Roses is honored to be among the sponsors of the “Marin’s Rock Art Scene” exhibit at MarinMOCA which opens Sept. 12 and runs through November 8 at the contemporary art museum’s gallery space at Hamilton Field in Novato.  The exhibit documents Marin County as ground zero for rock music in the late 60s with musicians, artists and venues that were central to the movement.  Other sponsors include The Rock Poster Society, Mike’s Bikes and Bruce Burtch.  Twenty percent of all art sales will be donated to Bread & Roses to support our ongoing program of healing live music for those who need it most.


Joan Baez’s original oil painting of the portrait of Mimi Fariña from 1967 when she appeared with The Committee will be shown.  An exclusive offering of limited edition prints from this not-for-sale portrait are now available from the Bread & Roses office.  


Three pieces from Bread & Roses archive are also for sale and will be included in the exhibit: an original photo by Jim Marshall of Mimi Fariña and Joan Baez on the beach in Monterey in the 60s (signed by Joan Baez and Jim Marshall; pictured here); a serigraph of “An Evening on Alcatraz” Benefit Concert on Alcatraz in 1995 with photo by Regis Lefebure (signed by Mimi Fariña, Bonnie Raitt and David Grisman); and an earlier oil painting of Mimi Fariña signed by artist Joan Baez.


In addition, Bread & Roses will be offering vintage concert posters, both originals and reproductions, for sale through the museum shop.
