Artist Rights Today (A.R.T., Inc.) was a collaborative effort of artists to reclaim legal rights to their work, specifically poster artists who produced advertisements for organizations like the Avalon Ballroom and Family Dog in the 1960s. These are three of four posters made for A.R.T., Inc. benefit events in the late 80s. The design of each poster was in itself a collaborative effort by five of the most famous and successful artists of the psychedelic era: Wes Wilson, Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Rick Griffin and Victor Moscoso. Each poster in the series was printed both as a lithograph and as a limited-edition of 350 silkscreen prints. This is an example of the latter, more Rare prints, hand-signed by each of the artists.
