New York exhibit focuses on early career of Keith Haring

BY ULA ILNYTZKY, ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK -- The bohemian atmosphere of downtown New York in the 1970s and 1980s had a huge impact on the art of Keith Haring, from his impromptu subway chalk drawings to his maze-like abstract paintings.

In a new exhibition that focuses on the late artist's early career, Haring's creative energy is instantly felt through his seemingly pulsating kaleidoscope-like designs.

"Keith Haring: 1978-1982" at the Brooklyn Museum includes 155 works on paper, 30 black-and-white subway drawings, seven experimental videos and rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition fliers and documentary photographs. It covers the years when the artist was 20 to 24 years old.
