I love Haring artwork. It reminds me of my days when I used to hang out in the Village. I was constantly at his gallery. Timeless classics. Shweet skin!

Keith Haring went to my high school, although a few years before I did. However, I did have the opportunity to meet him when I was in junior high, and he signed some stuff for me. I graduated with a cousin or two of his, and as a kid, one of my best friend’s grandmothers was his junior high art teacher; my neighbor growing up as a kid was his high school art teacher, and my 9th grade history teacher’s brother Kermit Oswald was Keith’s best friend.

I can still vividly remember the day Keith’s cousin came in with the new Swatch that Keith had designed. We were all jealous.

Keith was also very generous towards the Special Olympics (Keith’s aunt has Down Syndrome), and the cover art for the “A Very Special Christmas” albums was done because the proceeds benefit the Special Olympics.

It’s kind of cool to see how many people appreciate and enjoy his work, because where once, he was ostracized in this tiny PA Dutch town for being gay, now at the high school, his artwork hangs in the lobby to the auditorium for all to see, and his enormous sculpture of a boy on a dog sits atop the hill in the park.
