    Woodstock Festival Unique Prototype Poster (1969). A very unusual version of the famous Woodstock Music and Art Fair poster designed by artist Arnold Skolnick. When the event switched locations from Wallkill to Max Yasgar's farm near White Lake, NY, a new poster was commissioned, and this is the first printed version of that iconic poster. It measures approximately 18.5" x 23.5" untrimmed, with slightly different graphics from the final version. According to our notes, this first attempt was given to a local farmer, and found years later hanging on the wall of a barn in Jefferson, some five miles away from the Yasgar farm. This prototype was included in the recent exhibit held at the Museum at Bethel Woods, "Byrd/Skolnick: A Tale of Two Posters." The poster has some water damage and fading from exposure to the elements, and is in GD+ condition; framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 22.25" x 28.25". Includes a letter of authenticity.
