To Keith with Love
by Ginger Rudolph
You may not recognize his name, but chances are you’ve seen his hieroglyphic-like drawings. Keith Haring hit the New York Art Scene in the ‘80s and became an integral part of a community of artists who were changing the way art was received. His approach to public art garnered him a special connection with his admirers. He’s remembered not only for his art but for his body of work that extended past the galleries and museums and into the arenas of activism and children’s advocacy.
His legacy of work continues on through the Keith Haring Foundation.
In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Keith’s death, I took a few friends to Tompkins Park in New York to have fun celebrating Keith’s work by putting our own spin on some classic Haring paintings.
