“The next day I go to Galerie Beaubourg with Gil to discuss show of mural from New York (91st) FDR Drive Mural (1984), which has been “rescued” and shipped to Paris. It is in really bad shape, but somehow this makes it look even better.”

Avenue D Mural

“One of the things I have been most interested in is the role of chance in situations–letting things happen by themselves. My drawings are never preplanned. I never sketch a plan for a drawing, even for huge wall murals. My early drawings, which were always abstract, were filled with references to images, but never had specific images. They are more like automatic writing or gestural abstraction.”
— Flash Art, 1984, p. 22

“My decision to come to New York and become a “public” artist was spurred by my desire to communicate and contribute to culture and eventually history.”

“I begin mural and immediately attract a crowd. By the time I finish, to applause, there are 50-60 people watching. The sun is really hot and I wear sunblock and a hat. The audience is incredible.”

Cranbrook

“Cranbrook was pretty cool. I did probably my best painting to date!”
–Haring’s Journal, page 231“A lot of the things that I went through were temporary things. I knew when I was asked to do the piece here (at Cranbrook) that that was the situation. If I didn’t want to do it, I would have said no at that point. After I did it, my first reaction when I see it is that it’s one of the best drawings that I’ve ever done. To date. When I was finished I already missed it. I’m going to leave tomorrow and not see it again, ever. I did as much as I could to photograph it because photographs save it forever… It’s really a beautiful room as far as human scale… They didn’t want a Keith Haring wing in the museum, they want an ongoing exhibition space. So in a way its like a sacrificial thing, but it also adds to the whole energy of doing the piece.”
–lecture at Cranbrook September 25, 1987

“The first few times it was defaced, I was personally hurt by it. I realized, of course, that when you put something in public that it is in a certain way a gift and if you do it in public, and leave it, its vulnerable to whatever is going to happen to it from the outside world.”
— original transcripts of John Gruen’s interview with Keith Haring in 1991 on Houston Street Mural

“It’s sort of a compound of old and new buildings and, right in the center of it, stands this very modern building with a glass facade and an exposed stairwell running along the side of the building. It’s the perfect place to paint!” – Keith Haring, The Authorized Biography

Together We Can Stop AIDS (Sidas)

Photos: Gil Vasquez

“The message was one of education so that people will be more careful and conscious of AIDS and hopefully avoid it.””The wall had a strange slant to it, which made it awkward to paint on, but one of my favorite things about painting murals is the amount of adaptability (physically) you must put up with to accomplish the task. I found positions that were new to me to balance and keep the consistency required.”

— Haring’s Journal, Page 352“This is really an accomplishment. It will be here for a very, very long time and the city really seems to love it.”
