Keith Haring: Subway Drawings at Brattleboro Museum & Art Center
April 16 @ 5:00 pm - June 12 @ 9:00 pm
Brattleboro Museum & Art Center
10 Vernon Street
From February 18 to April 16 seventeen Keith Haring drawings will be exhibited publicly for the first time at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) in the exhibition “Keith Haring: Subway Drawings.”
In the 1980s, Haring made thousands of unsanctioned chalk drawings in New York City subway stations.
Only a limited number survive to this day, having been thrown away or papered over by subway authorities.
The exhibition’s opening reception is free and open to the public and will take place at the BMAC on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 5 p.m.
On Thursday, March 16, at 7 p.m., art historian Amy Raffel will discuss Haring’s subway drawings and artistic development in the early 1980s.
On Thursday, March 23, at 7 p.m., Angelina Lippert, chief curator at the Poster House in New York, will give a talk at Next Stage Arts Project in Putney on how posters marry the worlds of art and commerce.
This exhibit is supported in part by Heady Partners Vermont Hempicurean, Vermont Bud Barn and Vermont Grow Barn.
