Item #SKB-2585

Poster for Conner's 1967 run for City Supervisor in San Francisco. According to Bruce's wife, Jean, Bruce did not take the campaign seriously, but rather looked at it as a chance for free publicity and an opportunity to give "conceptual" speeches during which he would recite lists of candies and deserts, or in one instance he picked out verses in the Bible where the word "light" appeared and that was his speech. The poster features a photograph of Conner painting a baby elephant with a psychedelic design that prominently features the word "LOVE." He was executing a commission for Goldwyn Studio who wanted the psychedelic elephant for their counterculture spoof film "The Party" starring Peter Sellers. Printed in black against a blue background. A couple of minute edge tears, thin inconspicuous line of soiling across part of the lettering at bottom, but a bright, unusually fresh copy overall (26" x 20"). A dynamic, feel-good Conner item very much reflective of the period.
