Keith Haring first made a name for himself in the early 1980’s filling every blank poster-frame in the city’s sprawling underground system with hieroglyphs: barking dogs, laser zapping flying saucers, rubber-limbed dancers-and the radiant baby that best represented Haring’s energy and humanity.

“The reason that the ‘baby’ has become my logo or signature is that it is the purest and most positive experience of human existence,” wrote Haring in his journal in 1986. “Children are color-blind and still free of all the complications, greed and hatred that will slowly be instilled in them through life.” Recognizing that early exposure to artwork and unfettered creative expression can go a long way in opening up new modes of viewing the world, Haring was tireless in his work with children of all ages and backgrounds.
