Editor’s Notes: Online Ceramics has dropped two graphic T-Shirts in a new fundraising endeavor that supports the cultural and creative powerhouse that is the Kesey Farm Project.
The 64-acre Kesey Farm was once home to One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest author Ken Kesey. It was also the creative hub for a number of great artists and thinkers including poet Allen Ginsberg, the Grateful Dead, and Gary Fisher, who's recognized as the inventor of the modern mountain bike, and the Merry Pranksters.
The farm is now helmed by Kesey's granddaughter, Kate Smith, who launched the Kesey Farm Project in 2016. She aims to keep its cultural legacy alive via an annual five-week multi-disciplinary artist residency complete with workshops and exhibitions, which will hopefully support and encourage the next generation of creatives.
Online Ceramics' T-Shirt designs pay direct tribute to the minds that once dwelled on Kesey Farm, boasting photographs, Merry Pranksters' psychedelic bus-slash-LSD-trip-on-wheels, and Grateful Dead-esque tie-dye.
The shirts retail at $55 and $60 and are available to buy now. Proceeds go directly to the supporting project, which you can find out more about here.
