Before Big Brother & The Holding Company — also known as Janis Joplin’s original band — played the Regent in Arlington Friday night, the musicians stopped by the Museum of Fine Arts to see “Summer of Love: Photography and Graphic Design.” The exhibition — which runs through Oct. 22 — features five of their 1967 posters, two handbills, and a photo of the band by Herb Green.
