Today we celebrate what would have been Keith Haring's 54th birthday. The legendary street artist dominated the pop art scene in the 1980's and is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Haring's success was predicted by friends and fellow artists Jean-Michele Basquiat, Futura 2000, Kenny Scharf, and Andy Warhol, and his legacy continues to be celebrated 22 years after his death. Through various charity organizations, museum displays, friends, family, and entire new generation of supporters, Keith Haring's memory will continue to be immortalized, and he will forever be known as one of the greatest American artists of all time. Happy Birthday Keith Haring. Rest in power!
