The late Keith Haring was one of several art stars to emerge from the downtown New York City art explosion in the 1980’s. Haring made a name for himself early in his career for graffiti and street art. After becoming established he was commisioned to create major public art works, including this massive mural at the landmark Carmine Street Pool in the West Village. The mural has a summery aquatic-swim theme and is a perfect compliment to its venue. Note: The pool was the set of the swim scene in the critcally acclaimed 1990’s Larry Clark film “Kids” that starred quintessential donwtown indie actress Chloe Sevigny.
