HERBST SPECIAL EXHIBITION GALLERIES

Many of the works are on loan from the Keith Haring Foundation, New York, with supplemental loans from public and private collections. The exhibition features more than 130 works, including large-scale paintings on tarpaulins and canvases, sculptures, and a number of the artist’s subway drawings. The exhibition creates a narrative that explores Haring’s responses to nuclear proliferation, racial inequality, the excesses of capitalism, environmental degradation, and other issues of deep personal concern.
