Bonnie MacLean, also known as Bonnie MacLean Graham[1] is an American artist known for her classic rock posters. In the 1960s and 1970s she created posters and other art for the promotion of rock and roll concerts managed by Bill Graham, using the iconic psychedelic art style of the day. MacLean went on to continue her art as a painter focusing mostly of nudes, still lifes and landscapes.
Artist Wes Wilson was the main poster artist for the Fillmore Auditorium when he and Bill Graham had a "falling out" and Wilson quit. MacLean had been painting noticeboards at the auditorium in the psychedelic style, and took up the creation of the posters after Wilson left, creating about thirty posters, most in 1967.[4][7]
MacLean's posters are included in many museum collections including at the Brooklyn Museum,[8] the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco collection and at the DeYoung museum,[3] A few examples of her posters are in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art collection.[2]
