The Art of Woodstock #WordlessWednesday

Today, some art and monuments associated with the Woodstock music festival of August 15-18, 1969.


The modern Woodstock Festival Monument, town of Bethel, New York.

Outside the Woodstock Museum at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, town of Bethel, New York.

A paving stone on the walk outside the museum.

A poster (picture also taken at the Woodstock Museum at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, town of Bethel, New York.) This poster predates when the festival lost its original site in Wallkill, New York.

Now, the Town of Bethel features a heritage trail.  We didn't have time to do it, but maybe one day.
 

There is a Dove Trail throughout Sullivan County (the county where the festival took place). One of the doves is on the museum grounds.

One more dove, on the grounds of the Do Good Distillery in Roscoe, New York. (Veteran owned, and they offer free tastings - a donation, which will go to vet causes, is requested.)

If you want to see more of the Woodstock Music festival grounds:

  2. I had been home from Vietnam a little over a year when the Woodstock Festival took place. A lot of great bands got their national exposure during those three days.
