17-06-19 Keith Haring Studio Visit

Last week I was lucky enough to attend a studio visit arraigned by the  Keith Haring Foundation for ICP Community Partnership with The Mt Sinai Adolescent Health Center. Blog Haring himself set up the foundation in 1989 before he died.

“Keith Haring died of AIDS related complications at the age of 31 on February 16, 1990.”

The space is extremely impressive and the staff of the foundation could not be more friendly and welcoming. In the interests of personal privacy, I am only including images of the space.

1-25-13 Travel Theme: Walls

I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.

“Her heart was a secret garden and the walls were very high.”
William Goldman

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is: walls.

One of her examples was the pieces of the Berlin Wall in New York City. That sent me back into my old photo books for a scan.

American Sector - Berlin

American Sector – Berlin

That led me to look through a few other books. That took me to Turkey.

This is probably the least interesting wall in all of Ephesus but for some reason, I like it.

Decided to bring it home to NYC and the:Wall-3

Keith Haring’s Crack Is Wack wall.

I will be revisiting the theme this week and will attach some links then.
