“The Public Has a Right to Art:” Keith Haring’s Art & Activism – A Lecture by Dr. Leesa Rittelmann (CANCELED)
This illustrated lecture will address Haring’s legacy as an artist whose work manifested the genre of street art as we know it today and whose activism gave voice and visibility to millions suffering from an array of under-represented social and political injustices. Special attention will be paid to works created in service of child-wellness and HIV/AIDS awareness, the two issues supported by The Haring Foundation, a philanthropic organization established by Haring in 1989.
