A complete series of 10 silkscreens by iconic gay artist Keith Haring has been donated to the Center
by Tyler Cassity, a co-owner of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The Apocalypse series is on exhibit in the Advocate & Gochis Galleries until March 30.
Harings work is so iconic; were honored to receive and exhibit this series, says Jon Imparato, Director of the Centers Cultural Arts program. Its rare to have a complete Haring series together like this; were thrilled that people will have the opportunity to see all 10 silkscreens in our galleries.
Its fitting that a series created by Haringwho established a foundation to support AIDS organizations and childrens programshas been donated to the Center, a leader in HIV care as well as services for LGBT youth.
I hope and believe Keith Haring would be pleased that his passionate vision has found a home at the Center, Cassity said.
