Keith Haring Tribute
NYC real-estate developer and avid art enthusiast Tony Goldman acquired ownership of the Houston Street wall in 1984, and used it for advertisements for two decades. Through time, it saw its fair share of graffiti, but never anything legally commissioned. In celebration of what would have been Keith Haring's 50th birthday in March of 2008, Goldman donated the iconic wall to his friend and curator, Jeffrey Deitch. The two teamed up with The Keith Haring Foundation and Deitch commissioned Gotham Scenic to recreate Haring's original 1982 classic. The collaborative relationship between Goldman and Deitch continued in NY and later carried over to Miami's "Wynwood Walls."
