'80s Icon and Art World Darling Keith Haring on Display at the De Young Museum

When pondering the meteoric career of pop artist Keith Haring, the phrase “flash in the pan” is often uttered, but its relevance is up for debate. Dr. Timothy Leary, late psychologist and LSD poster boy, appreciated this description of his friend, despite its anticlimactic connotations, saying that it was a “good place to start.” A mere decade in the making, Haring’s skyrocketing trajectory, tragically cut short by AIDS in 1990 when he was 31 years old, surely qualifies as fleeting, but then again, his work—easily recognizable by its strong lines and kinetic nature—still makes an impact.

illy Art in the Streets

San Francisco was built by artists. Sure, LA's no slouch, and NYC has style to spare, but SF is the heart of free-wheeling artistic expression and creative experimentation. We make music, write plays, direct films, dance in the streets—all on a tiny, seven-mile by seven-mile fog-shrouded peninsula at the edge of the Western world. SF invented American café culture—we just called them coffee houses.
