Keith Haring: 1978–1982 at the Brooklyn Museum

March 16–July 8, 2012
Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing, 5th Floor

Keith Haring: 1978–1982 is the first large-scale exhibition to explore the early career of one of the best-known American artists of the twentieth century. Tracing the development of Haring’s extraordinary visual vocabulary, the exhibition includes 155 works on paper, numerous experimental videos, and over 150 archival objects, including rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition flyers, posters, subway drawings, and documentary photographs.


  1. i remember when keith was filling in empty subway poster spots with art faster than the MTA could cover them up - (their loss!) he was everywhere!
    even, it turned out in a friend's new apartment bathroom - he moved in- peeled some junk off the wall and voilà! There it was...!

  2. The best post. Every written word is in great co-ordination and the discovery is unique and appreciated by all of us. Embroidery Digitizing DigitEMB
