RxART, in collaboration with The Keith Haring Foundation, produced a mural for the entrance of La Rabida Children’s Hospital. The energy, optimism and spontaneity of this facsimile provokes the imagination and inspires creativity. Combining process, theater, and supreme calligraphic and compositional skill, Haring danced his drawings, perceiving the act of creation as a performance and ritual of every day life. Painting for Haring was transformative process, providing a creative catharsis.
Keith Haring (1958-1990) generously contributed his talents and resources to numerous causes. He conducted art workshops with children and produced murals, sculptures, and paintings to benefit health centers and public service agencies. In 1989, the Keith Haring Foundation was established to expand, and protect the legacy of Keith Haring, his art, and his ideals.
RxART was delighted to collaborate with The Keith Haring Foundation on a project that supports its mission of transforming pediatric hospital facilities into comforting and engaging spaces through site specific installations by contemporary artists.
