Keith Haring was known to draw on everything from walls to streets to the NYC subway. However, one of his most unconventional canvas may be motor vehicles. At the Peterson Automotive Museum, four cars and one motorcycle painted by Haring are on view. Adorned with his iconic figures and geometric designs, Haring used his creative license to completely cover the vehicles in his designs.
