Gary Grimshaw: Detroit’s Counterculture Poster Artist opens in the Allesee Gallery of Culture. The Grande Ballroom on Detroit's east side became the hot spot for counterculture music during the late 1960s and early 70s. Local radio disc jockey and Grande Ballroom promoter Russ Gibb wanted to emulate the rock and psychedelic scene of San Francisco through concert posters. Artist Gary Grimshaw designed posters that fit the bill perfectly.
