Kay Haring

FRI, Feb 17, 2017
6–9:30 pm

Floor One, The Whitney Shop

Join us in the Whitney Shop for a special book launch and signing event with author Kay Haring to celebrate the release of her new children's book based on the life of her brother, Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing.

Iconic pop artist Keith Haring comes to life for young readers in this picture book biography lovingly written by his sister, Kay Haring.

This one-of-a-kind book explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist’s great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world. Reproductions of Keith’s signature artwork appear in scenes boldly rendered by Robert Neubecker. This is a story to inspire, and a book for Keith Haring fans of all ages to treasure.

This event is free and open to the public.

The Museum building is accessible and has elevator access to all floors. Service animals are welcome. Learn more about access services and amenities.
