Keith Haring Foundation

The Keith Haring Foundation

Established by the artist in 1989, the Keith Haring Foundation perpetuates Haring’s artistic and philanthropic legacy through the preservation and circulations of his artwork and archives, and by providing grants to children in need and those affected by HIV/AIDS

The Foundation has started this blog to introduce fans and scholars to a rich selection of materials from Haring’s archive. Our holdings include sketches, polaroids, installation photographs, travel slides, to-do lists, video footage, audio interviews, fan mail, business correspondence, exhibition files and journals. We plan on sharing our unique finds along the way so come back to check for updates and event listings. Thanks for visiting!

  6. Thankyou for creating this website, i hadn’t heard of Keith Haring till about a month ago… I am doing my Art GCSE at the moment and for my project i researched artists and chose Keith so this website has been a great help.
    He is such an amazing guy!
    I even got so inspired i bought the book on him and ever since i’m completely fascinated by him and his artwork.

  8. Hi Elan,There is a car in the basement of The Morgan Stanley storage facility on Van Wyck Expressway and Atlantic Ave. in Queens N.Y. that holds a car in storage. The entire car was hand painted by Keith Haring.I don’t know who owns it,or when it was painted,but it is without a doubt Keith’s work.I saw it on 05/06/2010.

  10. E Woods,

    Please send my regards to Julia and the staff at KH Foundation. Brent and I are preparing WORLD AIDS DAY in NYC for the AMERICAN RUN TO END AIDS & BREAST CANCER now. I do hope to see lots of you at our observance. Look for the invite from me in the mail soon. I still miss Keith from the ACTUP days and our visits. I remember him often and think of how so many still love Keith and think that is a WONDERFUL THING to remember Keith and his ART.

  15. Hello, I just wanted to comment that I was unable to locate information about the Haring Mural on display at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena CA.. It’s a piece that was produced in 1989 by Mr. Haring. Just thought it should become a part of this website.
