The Unconventional Canvases of Keith Haring

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.

Toms + Keith Haring

FullSizeRender-109As Keith Haring so famously stated, “Art is for everybody.” Well, an original Keith Haring work isn’t something everyone can afford. But a pair of TOMS with Keith Haring’s design is a bit more reasonable and is designed for everyone. TOMS has partnered with the Keith Haring Foundation to create a line of shoes that illustrate Haring’s block figures from the NYC subway stations.

Andy Warhol Life & Legends

FullSihzeRender 22As Andy Warhol so famously stated, “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” Well the fame of the exhibition Andy Warhol Life & Legends at Pepperdine University’s Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art will certainly last longer than 15 minutes. Pop artist Andy Warhol’s Marlyn Monroe, his iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans and his playful Flower prints are all on display, as well as other works such as his Endangered Species Series and his Myths Series. The prints appear to pop off the brightly colored blue, yellow and red walls of the museum. Be sure to check out this exhibition before it closes on April 3!
