Keith Haring: From Cartoons to Politics
Look closely at Keith Haring’s Two Headed Figure. Upon first view, it appears
to have a youthful and friendly appearance, but how does this graphic become a
symbol of political action? Senior Museum Educator, Sara Segerlin
discusses Haring’s political messages and legacy, including his mural on the
Berlin Wall that became a “political and subversive act to psychologically
destroy the wall by painting it.” Free, no registration required.
