Lindsay Dry was born more than 30 years after Woodstock.
But she sure gets the “peace, love and happiness” vibe that (kind of) filled Max Yasgur’s farm that historic August weekend in 1969.
So when Lindsay — a Staples High School senior in Carla Eichler’s graphic design class — heard about a “Peace, Love and Posters” national contest commemorating the original bird-on-guitar logo (“and visually expressing values of kindness, community and aspirations for the next 50 years”), she went to work.
And what a work she created! Lindsay won 1st place — and $500 — in the 18-and-under category.
The other day, she was honored at a ceremony by the sponsor, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. The 800-acre campus — located on the actual Woodstock site — focuses on community and educational programming. The goal is to keep the issues and lessons of the ’60s alive, while inspiring a new generation to contribute positively to the world.
