If you’re a fan of Keith Haring and you are in the New York area, you’re about to hit the mother-lode.  The Brooklyn Museum has a fantastic exhibit of Keith Haring’s work focusing on the early part of his career from 1978 – 1982.  You’ll see sketches, journal pages, subway drawings, videos, still photos and many of these works have never been displayed in public before.

Videos from his time at the School of Visual Arts are also on display and if you’re a big Haring fan, you’ll be really excited to see footage of the infamous performance of Keith Haring “painting himself into a corner.”

Somehow, they were able to preserve dozens of Haring’s infamous subway drawings and there’s an entire room dedicated to the chalk drawings, including one that was done in collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat.
