James A. Michener Art Museum Exhibits Rare Keith Haring Artwork | Good news


Keith Haring was one of the most prolific artists of the 1980s. He is from Pennsylvania, born in Reading and raised in Kutztown.

Haring rewrote the rules of contemporary art during his ten-year career, and his work would gain well-deserved recognition in Doylestown.

The James A. Michener Art Museum has announced that it will present “Keith Haring: A Radiant Legacy”.

These are not your usual, everyday Haring draws.

The exhibition features dozens of works from a private collection. It includes two of Haring’s rare subway drawings, as well as complete collections of his famous series of prints.

It also features the impressive “Medusa Head”, the largest print ever produced by Haring.

Throughout her brief but distinguished career, Haring participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions. Throughout it all, he focused on social activism, raising awareness of AIDS, racism and the proliferation of illegal drugs.

It’s no wonder his style is so easily recognizable with a universal appeal that resonates today. The curator says she is delighted to present this impressive collection of Haring’s work and introduce her socially and politically engaged work to new audiences.

If you want to check it out, you have plenty of time, it runs from Saturday March 12 to July 31.
