As a young man, Grateful Dead founder Jerry Garcia, found his interests divided between visual and musical expression. He attended the San Francisco Art Institute. Music came to claim his full attention but he never stopped sketching. It was with Garcia's unmistakable humor that he once remarked about his art, “I hope that no one takes it too seriously.”
All of Jerry Garcia's artwork available for sale on this site was created by Jerry Garcia during his life time and released prior to his death in 1995. Whether signed in pencil or with a silkscreen signature, they are the original and only editions created by Jerry during his life.
Jerry Garcia signed his work according to the orders received. Therefore, some of the artwork which he did not sign before his death, have his silkscreen signature and are embosed with the mark of the publisher on the front of the artwork. All artwork is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
