Author and historian Jack Loeffler uses excerpts from conversations to explore influence that NM's landscape and Native cultures had on the burgeoning counterculture movement.

FlyerAlbuquerque Museum presents a talk exploring the tremendous influence that the New Mexico landscape and Native American cultures had on the burgeoning counterculture movement.

Author and aural historian Jack Loeffler uses excerpts from recorded conversations to explore the tremendous influence that the New Mexico landscape and Native American cultures had on the burgeoning counterculture movement, as well as the influence of psychedelics on many of the so-called 'hippies". He will also convey how the counterculture movement and the radical environmental movement co-evolved and remain present in different forms even today.

See photographs from the counterculture movement in the exhibition, A Past Rediscovered.

Far Out NM

You can make all the jokes you want about hippies, but New Mexico was just far out enough from the rest of American culture in the ’60s to become a haven for those interested in tuning in, turning on, etc. to become inextricably linked to the counterculture movement in ways that can still be felt today. Join historian Jack Loeffler at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History (2000 Mountain Rd. NW) on Sunday, Aug. 18 at 1pm for Counterculture in New Mexico as he uses audio clips to delve into the ways in which the culture and geography of New Mexico influenced the counterculture movement and vice versa.
