Keith Haring would have turned fifty this year and there was more than one vip "Party of Life" in NY to commemorate him. Keith was an intensely gifted person who worked/played hard and practiced what i call " receive and you shall give". From nuclear disarmament to aids awareness his passion was activism through art. As his success grew his birthday parties just got bigger each year.
Ever wonder what it is like to be dead for 20 years and then have a MySpace?
Apparently someone has opened a perfectly good MySpace for him, with a note to visitors:
**PLEASE read this first before sending me a message. This page is a tribute page for Keith Haring, approved by the KH foundation HOWEVER any messages will NOT go to Keith or his foundation, but to the creator of this page. I am amazed at how many people think by sending a message through here, that it goes to Keith directly. Please read the bio and history of his life, and note that he is no longer with us, yet his art lives on!
And from the family albums... Keith Haring, Carmel Schmidt and Min Thometz at Kenny Scharf's beach place in Brazil 1984.
