Yippie Manifesto (1968):
#17: A program that encourages and promotes the arts. However, we feel that if the free society we envision were to be fought for and achieved, all of us would actualize the creativity within us. In a very real sense we would have a society in which every man would be an artist.

The Yippie Museum opened in January 2007 with revolutionary poet and counterculture icon John Sinclair and friends playing music and reading their work. Dedicated to the history of the Yippies - the Youth International Party - and the political counterculture, the museum and cafe is open to the public and hosts book parties, poetry readings, film festivals and video screenings and has live music - jazz, folk, blues - on weekends.
