Keith Haring: A Radiant Legacy

July 31

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until July 31, 2022

Keith Haring (1958-1990) was arguably the most accomplished and prominent American artist of the 1980s. Born in Reading, PA, and raised in nearby Kutztown, Haring developed an early love for drawing. Despite working in a variety of mediums—including paintings, prints, posters, drawings, sculptures and street art—Haring developed a style that was instantly recognizable.

Haring’s interest in the colorful graffiti art of city streets would influence his meteoric rise. During his brief ten-year career, Haring rewrote the rulebook for contemporary art, integrating the seemingly discrete arenas of New York City’s gritty downtown counterculture and uptown art aristocracy.

A private collection of more than 100 works, the show contains unique and notable pieces, including two rare Subway drawings, complete suites (including Ludo, Free South Africa, The Story of Red and Blue, Apocalypse, Stones, Icons, White Icons, Bad Boys, Kalish), Medusa Head (the largest print in the artist’s oeuvre), Growing #2.
