Notes from Underground: Keith Haring

American artist Keith Haring, who rose from rapidly-rendered chalk sketches in NYC’s subway tunnels to become an international figure, was born in Reading, Pennsylvania on this day in 1958. Beginning with his “Radiant Baby” figure and stylings, Haring eventually took his works into the public murals sphere, creating socially conscious pieces addressing the AIDS crisis and Crack epidemic.
