Fifty years ago, man set foot on the moon and Woodstock became a cultural milestone, as the war in Vietnam dragged on. Sesame Street premiered on Public TV.  Coronado was changed forever with the opening of the San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge as well as the Coronado Cays. This exhibition features artwork inspired the events of 1969.
