Keith Haring

Keith Haring

Keith Haring created much of his early public art in the New York subway system, and as his work gained recognition, his energetic figures appeared in sculptures, paintings, and murals around the world. A committed activist, Haring supported a range of social justice issues with his work, and as an openly gay artist during the AIDS Crisis, he devoted much of his art to promoting AIDS awareness and supporting efforts to find a cure for the disease.

Harmony Hammond

Harmony Hammond

With an artistic practice spanning five decades, Harmony Hammond has worked in a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, and conceptual work. With a keen awareness of surface and materials, many of her works use fabric—a traditionally feminine component—to create installations addressing women’s lives and histories. Also an educator and scholar, Hammond writes, curates, and lectures on feminist, lesbian, and queer art.

This month, Grove Art publishes a completely updated article on Keith Haring, influential artist and activist.
