Paying Homage to Haring Via a Google Doodle

Image

It’s a great way to celebrate a Friday and my niece, Carly’s 14th birthday. Today’s Google Doodle features a new, playful and artistic logo to commemorate what would have been the artist Keith Haring’s 54th birthday. When he was enrolled in the School of Visual Arts on East 23rd Street (our former ‘hood of Kips Bay), my husband, Peter, used to see Haring underground drawing his infamous grafitti art.

The doodle uses typical Google colors – blue, red, yellow and green, and it really pops due to Haring’s graphical hieroglyphs.

Does Haring’s art resonate with you?
