Almost no other name has become as synonymous with New York City street art as that of the late artist Keith Haring. A fixture among the downtown art scene during the ’80s, Haring maintained a close relationship with many other alternative artists of his time including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf and Andy Warhol. Determined to keep his art public and accessible to all, Haring flooded New York with his signature bold, rhythmic lines and filled the subway system with literally hundreds of drawings. For “Art in the Streets,” the MOCA has placed a large selection of Haring’s works on display including several graffiti taggings and a car that the artist hand-painted himself.
