DESCRIPTION:
USC students will take a guided tour of the first-ever museum exhibition in Los Angeles focusing on the art and life of Keith Haring (1958–1990). Known for his use of vibrant color, energetic linework, and iconic characters like the barking dog and the radiant baby, Haring’s body of work continues to dissolve barriers between art and life and spread joy—all while being rooted in the creative spirit and mission of his subway drawings and renowned public murals: art is for everybody. After the tour, students will have time to explore the museum on their own. 

Curated by Sarah Loyer, exhibition manager at The Broad, the expansive exhibition spans from the late 1970s, when Haring was a student at the School of Visual Arts in New York, through 1988, just two years before the artist died from AIDS-related illness. It features over 120 artworks and archival materials, including video, sculpture, drawing, painting, and graphic works, as well as public projects such as subway drawings and public murals. Haring’s participation in nuclear disarmament and anti-Apartheid movements are featured prominently, as well as art that addresses complex issues such as the environment, capitalism, religion, sexuality, race, and the proliferation of new technologies.


The Broad is a contemporary art museum in Los Angeles offering free general admission and an active program of rotating exhibitions. By building a dynamic collection that features in-depth representations of influential contemporary artists and by advancing education and engagement through exhibitions and diverse public programming, the museum enriches, provokes, inspires, and fosters appreciation of art of our time.

Presented by USC Visions and Voices.
